Joie de Vivre

Saturday, July 20, 2013

This week I created a card for The Rubber Café with stamped images, vellum circles, and vintage elements.  Roughly translated," Joie de Vivre" means happiness of life.  Don't those little frogs look happy?

 
I also created a paper bow from cardstock that been stamped on with a background stamp.  Many companies are manufacturing dies to make these, but I created this bow by sketching out a rough pattern with a pencil and cutting it out with scissors.

  3. Soooo pretty Michelle! I love all things French, so when I saw the title, I knew I would love it. Those frogs sure look like they are living it up for sure! I thought the bow was a die, I am now very curious to see if I can do that, not sure, but boy yours is great. Thanks for the kind visit today!
