Hello & Happy Sunday Crafty Friends! Today for another Scrapping for Less Project I made a card with the Delightful “Parisian Holiday” Stamp Set by SugarPea Designs and La-La Land Crafts Vintage Bike.¬† I thought the two complimented each other beautifully.¬† I distressed the rounded rectangle frame with Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink.¬† Also added a bit of color behind my scene with more Distress Oxide in the colors of Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.¬† I colored the images with copic markers and die cut the adorable vintage bike with silver foil cardstock.¬† For finishing touches I added a few silver stars.¬† Check out the Scrapping for Less Shop for the items used today for my Design Team Project!¬† Grab your coffee friends and lets get to crafting:)¬† Have a Beautiful Day!¬† Thanks for stopping by!¬† Hugs, Tina
