Bonjour & Merci......

Couple of more cards, using the Carte Postale stamp set. We really enjoy driving to France and when I first saw this set, I loved it. The stamparound wheel - Leaves a la Carte is just beautiful. Must use that next...

The cardstock is Sage Shadow, Perfect Plum and Whisper White. Its a sort of diddie card 24cm x 10.5cm folded in half - it was left over from doing something else, so thats the reason for the size.

I stamped all over the sage shadow layer in sage shadow with the leaf stamp, then stamped in Perfect plum the motif.
The centre piece was punched out using the 1 1/4 circle punch and mounted up with 4 foam pads in the corners so its raised up, the flower was cut out and layered up as well. A rhinestone brad from the ice circles set was added.

The hodgepodge oval centre is raised up by some mini foam pad so it domes out.....I used whisper white to stamp the sentiment.

I pricked around the edge.

I saw a card very similiar on the front of the Austrailian Summer Mini Catalogue, so that was the inspiration for this card.

The base card is Pale Plum stamped with the French Flair background stamp in Perfect Plum...

I added some swirl cuttlebug in pale plum edged with perfect plum cardstock.

The layers of the flower - Scallop circle punch, then the square on whisper white and the flower stamped again and cut out and layered up.

I cut a slit on the edge of the card and threaded the ribbon through that way. Sorry another hodgepodge wordwindow to complete the card.

Your cards are beautiful. I especially like the first card. I love the "diamond" layer with a circle punched out of it and the flower accent in the middle. It's gorgeous. I'll have to try this. TFS!
