Provencal

Today's card hits three challenges!!

So here is the sketch:

And here's the card, based on this poster:

DSCF4423

This card measures 3 1/2" x 7 ", so it will fit easily in a business-size envelope. All the patterned papers are from Crafty Secrets Earthy pad; the green floral has been overstamped (again) with French Script, and I smooshed More Mustard all over the argyle to bring it more in line with the colors I was using. Watercolored image is a retired Hostess set, Provencal and is stamped on the reverse side of the argyle pattern; sentiment is from Sweet Violets by Flourishes. Pretty straight-forward, nothing fancy as this will be going to our retired minister who just had knee surgery! Thanks for visiting today!

  • Stamps: French Script, Provencal, Sweet Violets by Flourishes
  • Paper: Confetti Cream, Always Artichoke, Ruby Red, Earthy by Crafty Secrets
  • Ink: Stazon, Ruby Red, Garden Green, Always Artichoke, Creamy Caramel, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip
  • Acc: Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Button & thread, dimensionals, aquapainter, RHR ribbon, Wide Grosgrain ribbon from my stash
