A little French goodness

 Today I have a couple more sets to show you! One is another new background set called Basic Backgrounds III. With this set I can now have any color polkadot paper I want! I love reverse polka dots and Joanna did an absolute amazing job designing this one as it is easy and flawlessly lines up!! The other fun set is called French Notes. I paired up my first card with a previous set called French Boutique, thought it was fitting ;) I first stamped my polka dots on the card base and then layered the script backgrounder on top. Then to get my mulitcolored image I inked up the stamp with Tombow markers. The frame is the lovely new Fancy Layers 2 die.
For my next card I thought a gradient effect would be fun, so I inked up the polka dot strip in various red and pinks. I added another great French sentiment and colored up the gorgeous rose from the Flowers Bloom set and colored it with Copics. The matted frame is the new Fancy Labels 2.
