*IBS June Release: Say it in French

It's day 3 of, Inspired by Stamping June release. 
Have you been following along?
Have you decided which set is your favorite yet?
Don't decide yet, cause there are still three more sets you need to see. 
Today, I am sharing with you two of the three sets.
I am swooning over these new stamps.
I am using Morning Glory flowers, from the Summer Flowers, that was previewed yesterday. 
I colored them with Copics, but I also stamped them in the background, using versamark ink.
Check out the chicken wire!!! That is one of the new background stamps called: French Country Backgrounds.  I stamp the chicken wire onto actual chalkboard paper and embossed with white embossing powder.  I love this new paper, because it makes the embossed image really stand out.  
How about that sentiment!!!  
You know, I am all about my sentiments and this will be my first stamp set in another language!!  
I am now the new and proud owner of: Big Notes in French II!!! :) 

I hope that you have enjoyed my card today and will hop along to see everyone's creation
