Bonne Fete

Bonjour,

Hoping to see some sun after days of wet cold rain.  I have a little french country birthday card to share with you today!

I started this card by stamping a background pattern from Walzingmouse set called French Country in Crushed Curry ink. It's so pretty! Next I added a scalloped border die-cut in navy blue to the top portion of the stamped background. Next I stamped a border from French Country in Tim Holtz Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire was trimmed and applied to the center of my background panel. The sentiment Bonne Fete was stamped in Chipped Sapphire to the lower right corner of the panel.  


With Whisper White cardstock, I die-cut a Labels 18 die that coordinates nicely with Waltzingmouse Vintage Labels 18 which was stamped in the Chipped Sapphire. To the center of the focal die-cut Mr. Rooster was added using Crushed Curry.

I found my color inspiration from: Colour Create Challenge: Yellow, Blue, and White 
I am also joining in at Crafty Friends Challenge: Use two die-cuts and
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Birthdays

So that sums up this little French Country Birthday Card....Thanks for visiting me today!
~Tammy~
