Vintage en Paris

Hi all, hope you are all having a great weekend.

This morning OH, his Mum and I went to a garden centre to stock up on things for the allotment. It is almost as deadly as taking me to a craft shop. I don't usually grow potatoes, but as they are so expensive this year, we've decided to have a go. We also picked up some sets for shallots along with raspberries, gooseberries and rhubarb. Just need the weather to stay warmer now :)

The garden centre has a craft shop too, but I was really good and didn't buy anything. I really must be ill :)

Well, here is today's offering, a vintage page with a Parisian theme.
The papers are a freebie from a magazine, as are one or two of the diecuts and the lovely lace ribbon. The flowers are yet more stash from Papermania. The feathers don't show up very well but the aim was to be reminiscent of  the large feather fans used in shows.

Hope you like it :)

  1. Very the papers and the Parisian theme, but think maybe very soft coloured flowers would have been better....that's just my personal preference though, so please don't be offended xx

    I'm thinking of growing potatoes this year too and hopefully some easy vegetables....well my 8 yr old is as good as insisting, to be honest! lol

    Your card is very pretty, I cant make cards myself so I always enjoy those that others make :)
