Little Bit Scenic

Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Provence Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - French 50s Caf
I am loving the new Stamps Sheena Douglas has released...I am suppose to be sharing the first set Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Provence  from Crafters Companion. Well all I know when I seen these sets,that these individual stamps were going to go together.

Aren't these grapes from the Provence, and the cafe table and chair from the French 50's Cafe
 perfect together?
 I like to start with my Spectrum Noir markers and coloring with a dotted type technique and build the colors until I have happy with the blending.After coloring several grapes I fussy cut to use as a border.
I love to work with the grays (greys)

I used a frame die from Cheery Lynn Designs and a Spellbinder shape to mat and frame my matted image.
When using the Spellbinder shape I like to leave the die in place and pull out my Memento inks to distress, this one was Memento Pad - Summer Sky.
My fun polka dotted ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Thanks for checking out my layered card today~ I will be back next week Wednesday with another Crafter's Companion project to share ...hope you have a great week.
