More French flavour

Just playing around with Carte Postale and some Earth Elements. I wasn’t 100% happy with this card because I think I should have put the band and the image higher… you know, using the “rule of thirds”.

But I wanted to combine the gorgeous En Francais background stamp with Carte Postale as I think they are made for each other. I must have another go and see if I can come up with something I like.

Stamps: Carte Postale (p57), En Francais (p58)
Cardstock: Really Rust, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Really Rust, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: 5/8” Grosgrain Ribbon – Old Olive
