Its a French Thing!

Hi Folks,

Can't believe its a week since I last posted!  but it has taken all week to post this card!
I haven't been too faithful to challenges lately, but for the last few weeks I have been entering Make My Monday, and this weeks challenge is Paris, the first of the monthly 'French' theme.
Sorry for using this stamp again, but I do love it, and of course - it's Paris! I stamped a second image and cut out the extra flowers.  The postcard is  TH stamps. The green panel is again TH from the Papillion set, it was stamped on white card in Versamark, clear embossed  and then inked with Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass DIs. The DP is from Craftwork Cards.
I had a great start to the week - I was a Top 3 at Make My Monday, and a DT pick at Heck of a Challenge!

  I am also entering this at:
  Oldie but a Goodie - Inspired by a song (I love Paris in the Springtime - Stamp is 6 month old, paper is    
                                   older)
  BunnyZoes - Distressing
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes

That's about it for now, I am off to GNP at Harrogate on Saturday with my friend Diane, so if anyone else is going I would love to meet up.

Thanks for looking, and have a good weekend.

Avril xx

Congratulations on your well deserved top 3 last week at MMM. hope you have a wonderful time at Harrogate and why wouldn't you? Terribly envious. I too so love this stamp, I love the background and how you decoupaged the small flowers. Thanks for sharing with us during our visit to France during October at MMM. Caz
