a CARD: PTI and a school label

Hello dear Friends! Having a bit of a rough start this morning after spending four incredible days in dreamy California but we are home safe and I have a card to share. It combines a few fun elements...
Bonjour chères Scropines! Difficile de reprendre après ce court séjour de rêve mais nous sommes bien rentrés et j'ai même une carte amusante à vous montrer...


The branch and flower were made using dies from Papertrey Ink. All the colored papers were inked, painted using a mix of acrylics and mists. The school label is from France I think and the sentiment is Hero Arts.

La branche ainsi que la fleur sont de Papertrey Ink. Tous les papiers ont été peints, encrés ou pschittés. L'étiquette vient de Monop' je crois, et le sentiment est un tampon Hero Arts.


Thank you for visiting today, I look forward to catching up on everyone's blog!
Merci de votre visite, il me tarde de rattraper mon retard sur les blogs!
