Bonjour!

What a great month of challenges over at Make My Monday!  This week, the theme is to include Fleur de Lys in our project.  I decided to ink up this "Arc de Triomph" stamp, by Stampsmith, for the first time.  After distressing with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, it was layered over a black doily.  A portion of a map of Paris, also by Stampsmith was stamped, distressed, and tucked under the main image.  The sentiments were stamped, distressed, matted and layered to the card front.  Torn portions of a French text were distressed and added next.  A "Fleur de Lys" stamp, by Inkadinkado, was stamped several times, trimmed, water colored with Rusty Hinge DI and mounted to the card front with pop dots.  Copper Liquid Pearls and a red, white and blue ribbon complete my card.  Thanks so much for all your faithful visits to my blog.  I truly appreciate each one of you.  Best wishes, Yvonne

This could not be any more French! Amazing accents you brought to the card to give it that French style.
