A French Flair!

I have been making some cards and other items for sale in a shop in town, but the requirement is that it has to have a French theme!

I forgot to take photos of the first few cards I made but took some of these which I had the outline for in my head while making the first ones which were very different and used a retired SU stamp set Carte Postale. However, before I had the opportunity to put them together I noticed that another SU demonstrator had made some similar and posted them to her blog - Danielle Daws and I must have been on the same mental wave length at the time or found similar inspiration! Oh well, I decided I would still put mine together as I had envisaged them and share them here on my blog - what do you think Danielle a little different to yours, I like how you cut the birdcage out on yours?

The fleur-de-lis emblishment is not a SU product and the bottom card's ribbon is not either, these were given to me by the shop owner to add to the products I make for her. I hope she likes these cards as much as she did the first ones I made and the post-it note holders. I have other items I need to make for her so hopefully I will find the time and energy over Easter to get creative!

Don't forget to stop by my blog tomorrow to check out the new Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up! which will run from 1 April to 31 August 2010.

Hi Danielle and Bronwyn
Thanks for your lovely comments. The place is called 'Chez Moi French Sytle' on Liverpool Street (hospital end) and I would have to sell heaps to be able to afford to go to Convention - one can but dream! :)

These are very nice cards. The little bird cage is so cute on them. I hope you sell lots of them.
