The challenge at Make My Monday this week is to use Fleur de Lys as part of their French celebration. I'm very honoured to be their guest designer again and I would urge you to pop across and see the gorgeous makes from the ladies there as they really are so very talented.
Luckily, I had a background stamp which fitted this theme perfectly and the tag stamp was a freebie from the wonderful people at Crafty Individuals. I felt that the beautiful tag image needed to be given a slightly retro/vintage look and I've used a green colour scheme with a hint of gold to help achieve this.
I'm going to link my work up at Eclectic Ellapu who have an 'Anything Goes' challenge. This is a new challenge blog and it looks like lots of fun so why not go over and have a look?
Here's the card I made and I hope you like it:

|Two layers of plain inked card were used for matting. The pale green layer was achieved by repeat stamping a single fleur de lys image and inking the background. The die cut fleur de lys was inked then embossed with some green enamel.|

Thanks for stopping by to see my work, I really appreciate it. A big welcome to my new followers too.
