Joie de Vivre

It's a good thing I have a few things to post that I created awhile back......I just haven't had any time to stamp this week.  I've been working on my layout for the Spellbinders contest.  The dies arrived last Saturday.  I had worked on rough ideas using just the Inverted Circles before then since I already had those dies.   Once I had both the Film Strip and Inverted Circles, I just wasn't able to work the Film Strip into those ideas.  I came up with a new plan Saturday's progressing nicely.  Can't share yet.....

In the meantime, I have a card to show you that I created using stamps from Paris Exposition by Artistic Outpost.  I stamped the lady on glossy cardstock with Ranger Archival black ink.  She's colored with Distress inks. The background paper is Ancestral Tapestry by ANW Crestwood/TPC Studio.  I added Flower Soft to the centers of the paper flowers.  The lace is punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

Joie de vivre! 
Literally means "joy to live".
Enjoy a super day!
