April In Paris

I had been wanting this stamp for ages and it arrived, along with a lot of others, for my birthday last Monday ,a present from my lovely Sister in California, I was over the moon with all the stamps and also a spellbinders die that I had also had my eye on, then today my friend arrived with three more stamps for me, again all ones I have been "needing". We had a nice day playing with some of the stamps, so spoilt for choice I couldn't decide which to use, just like a kid in a sweetie shop. I made this card with Frilly and Funkie challenge in mind but it will also fit Pan Pastel challenge of a stamped image. All the papers are coloured with pan pastels, the background piece is stamped with a S.Up blossom stamp,flowers coloured with pro markers.The matching ribbon was tied round my parcel from my Sister and couldn't have been a better match.
