I love Paris card (The Paper Shelter image)

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a lovely weekend. It was a beautifully sunny Winter weekend here in Australia's Victoria and we have a day off today for the Queen's Birthday even though it's not her Birthday hehe. Our government decided to put it in June as we don't have any public holidays then! We're not complaining hehe. I'm hoping to get some crafting done as we've had "family time" over the weekend.

I love this image from The Paper Shelter, having just been back to Paris last August I was totally inspired. I felt the gorgeous paper and image shouldn't get too congested with embellishments so I went for a more simple card this time.

Flourish with a Bling have a massive Stocktale sale for June - Every product is just $2 !! All throughout June, everything is $2, no exceptions!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide.
