Ooooh La La - I saw this stamp at Michael's and couldn't resist it. I love everything French! Even though it's not Spring yet, in my world it can be Spring and I can be in Paris at the same time. Oooh, the imagination I have.
I am still using my old SU Parisian Breeze DSP. I am almost out of it. I don't know if you can see from photo, but I stamped the image on a lightly based dsp, colored and glittered the flowers. I cut out a strip of some other dp in this pack and used my fleur de lis border punch at the top. I popped the image at a slight angle.
I used my gold leaf pen on the fleur de lis portions of the nestie and the faux stitching.
The 1st two layers of the flowers were from Cottage Cutz and the inside layer was a MFT simple rolled flower. Glittered up and bling inserted in the center. I stamped the dsp I used for the flowers with my En Francais B/G Stamp and used my fleur de lis ef on the background panel.
I fancied it up with some bling, pearl swirls, triple bow ribbon with a large die cut butterfly on top.
I really enjoyed making this even though it took awhile. I just hope the photo shows up okay.

Pam, you certainly have a lot going on here, in a good way! You have a knack for making cards feminine and this one has so many sweet features! From the pretty lace, drop-dead gorgeous butterfly, the flowers and pearls, all so yummy! And the inside of your card looks great too~Hugs

Hi Pamzi!!! It looks like you were having the time of your life while you were making this gorgeous card. It glows. Good collage is so hard to do but you did it beautifully. I love your sweet flowers and of course the piece de restistance is the spectacular butterfly/lace confection in the corner. Into my faves with this masterpiece!! TFS!

...sure it’s got a catchy beat, but can you stamp to it?
