Lady on the Stairs

Happy Day to everyone.  Today's card brings a little French summer warmth and memories of sunny days and warm days to come.  I have used a mix of Stamps to make this card and have had a lot of fun planning and making the card.  The inspiration for the card style can be found here at The Artistic Stamper.

I would like to enter this card for the following Challenges :o)

I have had fun making this card.  The backing paper was plain and I have used a variety of stamps from my stash to decorate and distress inks to add colour.  The main image is from Serendipity Stamps and the lady is from Clarity Stamps.  These images have been coloured using ProMarker Pens and more distress Inks.

I have used paper lace from Cheery Lynn Designs, twine, buttons and some extra butterfly stamps to decorate the card.

A closer view of the front image on the card.

Details of the inside of the card   I have folded a piece of 12' x 8' card to make a 6' x 6' card with pockets.  Again lots of distress ink and stamping was done.  A manila label has been coloured, stamped and ribbon has been added and a label has been added to each pocket.

Thank you for reading this post.  I hope you like this card.

Sending warmest wishes to all.
