Saying Hello from the French Riviera

Ok, so I'm not really relaxing on the French Riviera but this card helps me feel like I am.

This week on MTME Pretty Pattern challenge, you can choose from sketches 1 - 6.  You can find those sketches here.  I used sketch # 5.    The stamps are from the digi collection, A Lil' Cafe.  

The paper is from the digi packs Dainty Damask and the pink & white stripe is one of my favorites from Serenity.  The post card is actually a free extra from the digi pack Warm Serenity.  

I colored the images with copics and used distressed inks to give it an antique look.  I couldn't help but add some little pearls to the centers of the daisy silhouettes and a little pink butterfly.

I lowered the circle in the sketch and put a flower near the bottom.  I added some netting behind it, diamond stickles to the petals and a pearl in the center.  

Thank you for visiting!  I appreciate every message so please don't be shy.  

Also, don't forget to stop by MTME's Pretty Pattern challenge and join in the fun!
