French trio

I was playing around after making this card and came up with a few extra little square cards. As you can see, I accidentally used Bordering Blue to stamp the flowers on the Bonjour card – on the second picture you can clearly see the difference between that shade and Brocade Blue on the other two.

To get the subtle images on the background of the card, I stamped off on to scrap paper before stamping on my project.

Stamps: Carte Postale (p57)
Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla
