Love In Paris
Friends of ours were in Paris last weekend to celebrate their wedding anniversary. So I have made this card for them.
I plan to enter this card into 3 challenges. firstly Papertake weekly http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/ the challenge there is 4 seasons. to make a card that reminds you of one of the seasons. This is prob me being an old sop, but love the film "Paris in the spring" and this card made me think of that.
The second challenge is A Spoon Full Of Sugar http://aspoonfullofsugarchallenge.blogspot.com/ which is "Floral Fantasy" I have used prima flowers on this card, and have used peel off dots to make the centre.
And the final challenge is My Time to Craft http://mytimetocraftchallenge.blogspot.com/ which is to use neglected and forgotten stash. This was a lot of fun I dug out 2 old stamps the Paris one is "Santa Rosa - The Montage Collection" and the dancing couple is from "Anita" they have been coloured using my whispers pen. (I have honestly not used either of these stamps for years!) The pink paper was also lurking at the bottom of my craft cupboard.
Finishing touches, I have stitched around the edge, used "distress ink -worn Lipstick" to ink around the edges. I have used a few brads in some hinge stickers ( left over from a kit I bought from qvc years ago!) also her dress has been glittered using "distress stickles - worn lipstick" and finally I have drawn over the word Paris with glossy accents to give it that added shine!
As a quick P.S i just want to apologise to the authors of the challenge blogs, as I have put an entry in twice, due to technical difficulties my original "Love in Paris" post was deleted so I have had to re do it. I apologise for any inconvenience this causes!
