Vintage En Francais

While going through my craft closet the other day I came across this monarch butterfly punch.  I hadn’t used it in a while and thought it would go perfect on this vintage card.  This was an easy one to create since the only stamping is the En Francais background.

Now I am off to search for a Paris stamp I have somehow misplaced.

A lovely card Donna. Like the colors and the layering, isn't it fun to find things we haven't used for a while, that butterfly was just the right touch.
