Merci Beaucoup!

 I've been making Thank You cards lately...here's one with quite a bit more detail than usual. But I really wanted to use my "old-fashioned" ladies stamps again, so this seemed a good enough excuse.


The color scheme was chosen to fit a challenge...as were a few other things.
Such as the layout


Lots of sparkle on the lady on the left as well as on the Merci Beaucoup die cut.
Here's my list of ingredients:
Inks- TH Distress Ink "antique linen" & "vintage photo"
Markers- Spectrum Noir, MEPXY
Stamps- Stampabilities "Vintage Flourish", SweetStamps "Italian Handwriting", "Parisienne Collage", & "Margery", JustRite "Fleur de Lis Labels 23"
Foam squares- Paper Studio "Sticky Doos"
Printed Flower- K&Company "Watercolor Bouquet Layered Accents"
Rhinestones- KaiserCraft "Ice Blue"
Pearl sprays- Zva Creative "Chocolate Swirls"
Stickles "Star Dust"
Glue Dots
Handmade rolled flower
Card stock & doily- from my stash

Challenges:
http://thekraftjournal.blogspot.com - #164 A Color Challenge
http://theshabbytearoom.blogspot.com - #211 Bits & Bobbles, include flowers,
buttons, print/sentiment
