Springtime in Paris

Hi All,

Just a quickie post, as I have been trying to find time to upload this card since Friday! 
The theme over at Craft Room Challenges is 'Music' and at the Stamp Man - Use vellum, so I have combined the two.  The background is a Stampendous Stamp and I have inked it with Bundled Sage and although it doesn't fit the card, you can't see  where I have 'joined 'it. There is also some random music notes stamped around.  The vellum was inked up with and IndigoBlu music stamp and then distressed.  The image is another Stampendous and I have sponged  with Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint, Spun Sugar and Vintage Photo inks. the flowers were coloured with Promarkers and layered.
I would also like to enter this card in:
  Craft Room Challenges - Music
  The Stamp Man - Use Vellum
  Aud Sentiments - Spring/Summer colours
  MAWTT - Shabby Chic or Vintage
  Rainbow Lady's - A touch of vintage

That's it for now, been out for a lovely lunch and off to enjoy a cosy evening with DH as its our Wedding Anniversary (didn't realise it was the same day as the Titanic sank, until this year) - can't neglect him for blogging tonight!!

Hi Avril

Just popping by to say Hello after the Easter Hols. I have lots of blogging to catch up with!!!
You've used one of my fav stamps on your gorgeous card and I love the way you've decoupaged the flowers. The vellum works a treat doesn't it. I've re discovered vellum recently and it's quickly become my new favourite thing.
Thanks so much for joining in with us at The Stampman this time.
