Feminine/Romance for MMM

Hi Folks,

Just had a little break from the last of the 'Save the Dates'  (I need to do this as otherwise they would get boring!) - nothing to do with the fact that I needed to do a card for the last week of the French theme at Make My Monday and this weeks challenge is Feminine/Romance. 
I have stayed with a vintage theme and I have used a Justrite Stamp on a 6" x 8" card..  My base card, which started life as cream hammered cardstock,was distressed around the edges and then stamped in Pumice Stone with the TH Papillion script, before adding the image, which was matted onto gold.  The ribbon was heat distressed, I used Frosted Lace stickles on an extra stamped image of the butterfly. The 'stamp' was coated with Glossy Accents.

I would also like to enter this at:
  Pink Elephant - Vintage/Shabby Chic
  Addicted to Stamps- Things with Wings (Butterfly)
  Sugar Creek Hollow - Vintage with Text
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes

As I said, just a quick post - back to the 'grind'

Before I go, would like to say 'hello' to my new followers - hope to visit soon!

Avril xx

Oh look how beautiful! I've been resisting and resisting this stamp - and telling myself I've got text stamps and label stamps and to just do it myself - but it is just too beautiful! I love your distressed Papillon background, and the ribbon doubling as an additional butterfly... Gorgeous work!

How beautiful, Avril. I love the Just Rite stamp. When you said you'd used the Papillion stamp I couldn't see it at first but then I spotted that lovely soft background. It's lovely. I must give such soft colours a try.
Don't work too hard.
Hugs Lisax
