Card in Vogue

 
 
This card was simple to make with a freebie from Dana's Inspirations a photo of the Eiffel Tower with an overlay...it was originally in tones of brown and I converted it to blues with Photoshop Elements just because I wanted to. This photo brought back memories of a trip to Paris many years ago.
After printing and trimming the photo, I added more black ink around the edge, wrapped it with a silver metallic ribbon,  placed on a textured silver cardstock mat and then a glossy blue mat that I embossed with Cuttlebug EF Kassie's Brocade....very French looking.  I used a textured black card base.  I forgot to mention that I printed directly onto the photo a Birthday sentiment "having a Happy Birthday is always in Vogue" that I saved from Create with TLC.  My husband especially liked this card!
 
Challenges:
Our Creative Corner:  Captured Memories-share a special memory captured in a photo...project must include a photograph .  A vintage photo from the Internet is also acceptable.
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Use something old, new, borrowed or blue. It can be just one of those things or any combination you want really.  I used blue,  old ribbon and papers,  and I guess the photo could be considered borrowed.
