Hello All,

Well this card was a bit of a happy accident....a case of a card that just happened rather than having any sort of plan....I had been working with Kraft card....something I have not done that often...and still needs a lot of practice!!!....and I made a card, that I really don't like......anyway on the floor a piece of this stripy "my minds eye" paper fell over some Kraft Card...and I liked it together....My craft ultimate pro was just lying there so I embossed some scallops cut it out and stuck on the card......I was just going to leave it half done for another day when I remembered I had this Paris themed I cut out the Eiffel tower..... stuck it on and that was the start of the card.

I then used my new "Sheena Douglas - My Fair Lady 2 set".... This image actually has 3 people on it, but I cut the last lady off so that I had a romantic couple instead....I coloured with copics....I have layered up the hat to add dimension and added a little stickels.

Just to finish off I added the fancy corner....and a sprinkling of gems......and actually for me the card came together quite quickly, It just kind of happened!........a little different but I am quite pleased with the results.

This is my entry for:

Let Ink It Up - Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time - Love/Valentine
Cupcake - Something New (new Sheena Douglas stamp)
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Love it in the Air

Thanks for looking......and thanks for putting up with me as I experiment with so many different styles!!

Hugs Juls
