Paris Love

Here is one of the cards that I took to the bridal shop to sell.  I left the interior without a sentiment, so I'm not pigeon-holing myself into just a certain category.  When it comes to love, the lines are blurred.  This could be a shower card, meant for just the bride, or it could be a wedding card for the happy couple.  It might even be good as an anniversary card, especially if the bride and groom took a trip to Paris for their honeymoon.


I used an Eiffel Tower page from the Lost & Found Madison Avenue - My Mind's Eye paper pack.  I added a stamped image of a chandelier (touched with Bisque Liquid Pearls), two sentiments and that curlicue thing on top of the chandelier - all from Inspired By Stamping.  The rose and little leaves were dabbed with Glossy Accents glue to create 'raindrops'.


This stamped sentiment goes SO well with the paper, doesn't it?  When you think about it, the paper really did all the work here.  Take that away, and I've got 4 stamps and a flower.


Entering this at City Crafter challenge, where they'd like to see a project with the word 'love' on it.

I'm so glad you popped in today!  May your day be beautiful, mon ami (my friend).
