I Love Paris

City Crafter Challenge this week had a very interesting challenge from Kristy: Use the picture below as inspiration, create a card/project, no color or Paris image is required.
This picture reminded me of a trip to Paris in 1969 ( many years ago) so I pulled out a picture that I made of the Eiffel Tower as I walked the Champs Elysee and cropped out a portion to use on my card. I also had some old paper from PSX with a travel theme and a section just happened to show the Eiffel Tower.  Pulled out some beads and mother of pearl leaves that I saved from an antique hat (maybe Parisian)...I never throw anything away.....and voila I have a card. Used GKD PL Chocolate Brown for base card. Stamped "Bonjour" with Hero Arts alphabet and Memento Rich Cocoa . Added glitter to the tower...can you see?
Bonjour mes amis. Merci de votre visite. S'il vous plaît laissez un commentaire. Passez une bonne journée.
