Parisian Vintage

Hi Folks,

I am continuing this months  French theme at Make My Monday which this week  is Vintage.

My card base was stamped with a TH Floral swirl, a combination of TH and Hero Arts French Writing for the post cards. The Eiffel Tower image is Paper Artsey (new from Harrogate) and the main image is BLine, which was part of my Internet purchase last week, I have lusted after this stamp for ages, but it  always seemed to be out of stock. All stamping was done with Black and Faded Jeans DI.  Distressing was Tea Dye, Ribbon dyed with Faded Jeans DI.

I am also entering this at:
  Pile it On -  Vintage /  Shabby Chic
  Fab & Funky - Vintage
  Divas by Design - Anything Goes

That's it for now, thanks for looking.
