Provence on Paper...I Love GCD Studios



Decided to take a break from my seasonal projects and break out the fabulous papers from GCD Studios.  Awhile back, I shared my love of Provence with you.  When I finished this card, I think my husband's exact words were "that sure screams Provence".  Now, I think...that was a back-handed compliment, but he was right on the money because this paper is from the Provence Collection, so good eye, Paul!

I used a variety of the designs and included 3 of the die cuts from the set.  Even the 12 x 12 sheet that I cut had a die-cut edge.


I 'blinged' up the rooster with a little Diamond Stickles and added a few punch cut-outs with pearl centers.

Just a little project to brighten (literally) your day!






 Have you seen either of these fabulous cups lately?

If not, then you have not been to The Play Date Cafe.
 Thursday starts a brand, new challenge with our brand, new designer, Jules Campbell so make sure you stop by and check out the FaBuLoUs colors for this week's challenge!

What gorgeous colours Julie, they really cheered me up! Wish I was in hot Provence instead of the rainy North of England. LOL! x

Stunningly gorgeous, Julie! I love those Provence-inspired colors--the rooster certainly helps the feel of it, too! Beautiful in every way! Looking forward to tomorrow's challenge! Sorry about the rain--wish we could get some, though!

I so love your card and totally enamoured by the paper, Julie. I had my kitchen renovated with this theme...the stone and granite with the roosters, wine labels, and accented in blues on neutrals...your card really struck a chord...absolutely gorgeous. I haven't seen this paper before and so pleased to see it being used in your art. Hugs, Gayle.
