Glorious Tuesday morning blog friends!!  I’m back at home after being gone for seven wonderful days.  My son is starting a new college in a new town and I was helping him get set up.  I called in the reinforcements too as you may have read in my last post.  We had a wonderful time and everyone went home with a family tree tucked in their belongings – more work to do but we’re off to a very good start.  I must say that I’m back in time to jump in on a fabulous, fabulous new JustRite Stampers Release called Bon Voyage with a marked shabby, vintage french feel!!

I pulled out lace and seam binding, as always.  My center medallion is made from Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares followed by Spellbinders Postage Stamps.  I followed up with Spellbinders Classic Square because I wanted the center to have a different colors.  The next layer of the medallion is Spellbinders Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents followed by another Postage stamp.  For my lace treatment, I started off with a layer of ruffled and distressed crepe paper and layered on top lace followed by seam binding.

The final touches were a Scor-Tape rose – I dropped two round pearls in the center.  Then last but not least, I found these jewelry findings at Joann’s and thought they would be perfect for my pearl pick. It seemed like the perfect place for a small bow and a tiny hang tag made using Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accent’s smallest inside oval.

Stamps: JustRite StampersBon Voyage
Paper:  My Minds Eye – Lost and Found, Bazzill
Ink: Versafine – Vintage Sepia, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Tattered Rose Distress Ink, Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink
Accessories: Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares, Spellbinders Classic Square LG, Spellbinders Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents, Spellbinders Postage Stamps, Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents, Pearls, Lace, Seam Binding, Pearl Pick

I had not planned to be absent so long . . . I’m back in the saddle now, so thanks for stopping by.  Please be sure to visit the rest of the JustRite Design team to see the fabulous creations they’ve made with the new set!

    Becca, this card is beautiful. I love the layers, details, embellishments and paper. By the way, are we going to see a Becca bit on the beautiful flower.

  • Francie (Montreal)August 23, 2011 - 2:56 pm

    Welcome home! I missed you, but was glad you were able to get away, help your son and enjoy yourself with family. You deserved a break.
    I agree with Francine. This is not a card. King Louis XIV would have been pleased to frame and hang this in his palace at Versailles. You’ve out done yourself with this card and I specially like the pin treatment.

    Again, welcome back, Becca. Happy to see you again.
    Bravo on another masterpiece, FrancieReplyCancel

    Welcome back you were surely missed. But I hope the time away did you good…by the looks of your card…it was very good. Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • KellyGAugust 23, 2011 - 5:09 pm

    Becca I just had to tell you a little story that made me chuckle. My husband walked in as I was looking at your card and he says look at the flower. You could make that….but how did she get the little circles in the center. Then he says, oh I get it, she just dropped them in. The next thing I read, you say you just dropped them in….maybe he is a crafter after all. It doesn’t sound too funny as I type this, but I thought it was cute!ReplyCancel

  • Holly ThompsonAugust 23, 2011 - 5:14 pm

    Oh my gosh, I was just at JoAnn’s looking for some pearls to make the pins and I came across those cones, thought they had a vintage feel, but just didn’t know what I would use them for, so I passed them by. Guess I’ll have to go back now! LOL Love it!ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer FerrellAugust 23, 2011 - 5:20 pm

    Just beautiful Becca? Did you feel the earthquake today? I’m in northern Maryland and we had to hold onto the walls at one point! Scary!


  • DeniceAugust 23, 2011 - 7:38 pm

    This is so wonderful. I just love your mix of colors. So glad you were able to spend such a nice time with your family. When that happens around here, I just feel like “my cup runneth over”. Must admit though , I missed the frequent e-mails from the “friend ” I never really met. God bless…… DeniceReplyCancel

  • lois skiathitisAugust 23, 2011 - 7:41 pm
