Vintage Amour card

Happy Saturday!

Yes, that's right, another card using the Artistic Etchings stamp set!  I love French culture and architecture, as well as the language.  I studied French for 5 years in school, and seriously considered double-majoring in French and Biology.  Anyway, so I just about flipped when I saw this stamp set, and had to have it!

This card just evokes a sense of Parisian elegance and style for me, maybe even Victorian.  You're also getting a sneak peek at the new Newsprint Designer Series Paper in the background!  I adore this new paper pack, and I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of it here. ;)  You've seen the Eiffel Tower and "amour" stamp before, and the decorative accent along the blue strip is also from the set.  So pretty!  (I also love that Baja Breeze is coming back as a core color!)

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!  Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there.
