Pique-nique à la Française
Hope you had a lovely weekend and that you are looking forward to this new week. Here, summer seems never-ending. I know some of my fellow countrymen would hope for a never-ending summer, but I do wish for a bit of winter.
When I opened my blog this morning Cupcake Craft Challenge has an Ooh La La challenge. That can be just French. Since I had some great memories of our stay there in the mountain areas and probably our favourite favourite way of relaxing were walking in the mountains and having a picnic next to a small stream, where my boys can play in. The French love walking in the mountains and to have picnics were they come.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to do another card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge MMSC138, this time the card has a bit more meat around the bone. The digi is from Shelly's image and is called wine basket and it have all the real good French picnic stuff: wine, cheese and baguette, oh and fresh fruit. The sentiment is from Desert Diva, I've just changes the background colour with Photoshop. Father's day is just around the corner. The dotted paper is from DoCrafts, that I got with Papercard essentials magazine.Used a cuttlebug emboss template on the red and used a torn ruler for the torn edge of the white that I distressed with chalk and I used my Crafter's companion ultimate pro to make the ribbon, it makes life much easier. I know the flag of France is vertical, but for my card I've turn the ribbons horizontal.
