BONJOUR PARIS! ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #24}

This week our theme for Challenge #24 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is a Anything goes - can it be any easier.  I chose four images from Free Vintage Digi Stamps.


Here is my creation using the Free Vintage digi stamps. Once again its a centre step card design. The design papers are from Basic Grey. The 1930's ladies were coloured with H2O's and the Paris background digi was coloured with dry chalks. The flowers were created with 2" Scalloped Square Punches and here is the link to the tutorial for them.
