Royal Fleur de Lys

Thank goodness for Make My Monday! why do I say that?.. well apart from being a fabulous challenge sight with lovely, talented DT members and  if I wasn't a member of the DT there would be no crafting done in this place... so thank you MMM.

 Continuing the French theme the challenge at MMM this week is to use 
Fleur de Lys in your projects.

This gorgeous Fleur De Lys is from Chocolate Baroque  Royal Fleur De Lys set which has come in very handy this month. It was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with a brown EP  cut out and edged with a brown marker pen.
The DP is a digi download from Jodie Lee, Gypsy Chick paper freebies which I printed out twice. I used a craft knife to cut out parts of the flower design  which enabled me to insert the postcard corner. I cut out some of the flowers from the second sheet to use as embellishments.

 Other stamps used:
Air mail stamp: from Affairs of the Heart: Non Sequitur
Circle Fleur de Lys, grapes and words from Clear Choice: Travel France... another invaluable set this month.
French scipt from Impressive Images Essential Elements.
Inks used:
Versafine: Vintage sepia.
 DI: Antique Linen and Tattered Rose.

 Life in 2012 has continued since January to be a roller coaster of events and emotions but I'm hoping things settle down so that I can get on with some crafting and visit your blogs and say hello more often :o)
 take care

Wow Sue, this is such a beautiful card. I would never have thought of teaming that beautiful Fleur de Lys with that gorgeous bp but they are perfect together and you have created a stunning card.

I know what you mean about 2012. I don't want to wish my life away but I won't be sorry to see the back of it. Hope your life settles down very soon.

Sending a big cyber hug!
