Spring in Paris


Today I had a play with my new stamps that I bought with the help of my prize from The Stampsmith Challenge blog.  This stamp is from the Paris plate and is stamped in Memories Sand ink.  I cut and matted it with my Nestabilities Labels Four.  The beautiful flowery bg is actually a paper napkin from Tesco.  I punched the border in the blue card with my Martha Stewart French Scallop punch and added some lovely ribbon, a bow, flower and button. 
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
The Stampsmith - Spring theme
The Play Date Cafe - Cath Kidson colours
