Excuse my French!

This is my card for the  Shabby Tea Room challenge this week.
The challenge is to use neutrals, navy & distressing. 

Here's the inspiration photo.

I incorporated the French sign, Paris letter, blue & white plate, (found at Graphics Fairy)  pitcher, shutters and the blue gingham.  This is not my usual style, so I found it to be a bit of a challenge, but now it's done I find that it's growing on me. 

A couple of close - ups


Thanks for looking, I appreciate you stopping by for a visit.
Have a lovely day.

Hi Playwriter, I just did a search and found some that were free downloads. Wish I could remember which website I found these on. I also found the French sign and postmark. Thanks for your nice comment.

I absolutely love this card it's really quirky and unusual, the pitcher and plate really bring the design together. It jumped out at me over at MIM and I just had to come and have a closer look
