The first thing that comes to my mind when you mention the Provence region of France is sunflowers - lots of them. So when I saw at the Play Date Cafe the challenge was Provencal Style using the colors in the image below as the inspiration, I knew I had to start with sunflowers as a main focus. I also knew I'd combine that with a variety of colorful patterns that stand on their own when alone, but then when combined together look related and a perfect match for one another.
For the finishing touches - a handmade distressed flower made from my SU scallop circle punch, a few Papertrey vintage buttons and some beautiful lace stitched on that I recently got at Joanne's. The layout of the card is from the Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge (SC288).
Merci for stopping by today..... Au revoir et salut!
