Make My Monday-Fleur de Lys

Hi everyone it seems a while since I posted as my last one was scheduled and with all the building work going on, looking for a new kitchen and busy making something special for Charlie's christening the week has got away from me! oh I forgot to mention girlie lunches and retail therapy:)
Over at MMM the French theme is in it's 3rd week and this time they want to see a Fleur de Lys included. I had to resort to using Craft Artist and some internet images as I've run out of French themed stamps!
This is what I came up with;


The background I created in Craft Artist and added in a couple of images of old French postcards and printed them out twice so that I could decoupage them. I put a plastic dome onto the word Paris and the fleur de lys I cut out and gilded  with marbled gilding flakes which I felt complimented the background.
The sentiment is an old seedee one that I mounted with a fleur de lys brad.

Thanks for any comments you leave I love to read them and before I forget a big welcome to Pia my new follower, thanks for choosing me:)

Lovely card Valerie! I know what you mean about running out of French stamps - it's quite a tough one isn't it?!
I love the colours you've used and all the little extras combine to make this a wonderful make.
