Ooo la la, Mr. & Mrs.

Hi.  :-)  I have a thing for Eiffel Tower images.  I hear you saying, "Yea, we know!" ;-)  Love to use it for wedding-themed cards for some reason; maybe because Paris is known as the City of Love & Lights.


I stamped the image (from Mon Ami Paris by Technique Tuesday) in cocoa, and then found some pretty papers to coordinate, beginning with Pink Paislee's damask design from their Sweetness collection.  Leafy Vine from Hero Arts was first stamped in chocolate off one corner, but that didn't show up very well, so out came the gold embossing powder.  Added some gold sequins to match, but, geez, the camera makes them look bright yellow!


“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast.”
 ~ Ernest Hemingway

Loved your Eiffel Tower. Could not have asked for better Chicago Wedding Venues to have held our event. Everything was impeccable - from the decor to the food to the service.
