Bonjour

I was beginning to think that this card was just not meant to be. I wanted to play along with the new Mojo Monday sketch so I took out some patterned paper I've been wanting to work with and started in. No, it is not the paper you see here. That card ended up in my "I'll try to salvage it later pile". Next, I pulled out my tin of Paris rubber stamps by Cavallini. This is a set I just "had to have" about four years ago and inked for the first time tonight. When I tried to work with the sketch, I discovered that the Eiffel Tower was too tall, so back to the drawing board. I re-sized the card base and dug out this beautiful PP by KI Memories and finally was on my way to a finished card. I love the combo of pink, black and white...it just says "french" to me.

I popped both the Eiffel tower and the sentiment panel on dimensionals and added a mix of crystals and a silk ribbon to finish the card.





It's all about the details:
Card stock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper:
KI Memories
Stamps: Cavallini
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Ribbon, Crystals, Dimensionals
Tools: SU Punches
