I was inspired by a card I saw online and with a few changes came up with this. It uses several stamp sets that are retiring and have in fact already sold out. Maybe you have them and if not you can always use the idea and substitute other stamps. The oval background using En Francais is done by making a mask with an oval framelit. Cut out the middle of a piece of white or vanilla cardstock (it's a little thinner than colored cardstock and works better). Ink up the stamp, place the mask on top and then place your solid piece of cardstock on top and rub over the top of it. You only get the stamped image in the cutout area. The other images are from Papaya Collage. The black butterfly has a punched silver glimmer paper butterfly under it.
And her is the inside:
I don't often add an extra mat to the inside panel however after seeing that my friend Linda Sabourin does this so often and loving the look I decided to give it a try. It sure made the white panel look better when putting black between it and the Sahara Sand card.
