Parisian Whimsy

Welcome

I recently made this rather whimsical card.


It all started with the green base and the piece of yellow card that were sitting on my desk after other projects.


I stamped and embossed the Eiffel Tower in bronze. 


To add to the Parisian feel I stamped the Paris stamp in brown ink, which on the yellow gave an interesting effect.


Next was a layer of paper tape which I found by a serendipitous chance I could emboss on, so the sentiment was embossed in bronze to match the tower.


A flourish of rhinestones added some whimsy.


 The wee flower and Fleur de lis were stamped in Versamark ink and then had pearlised powder rubbed over them.


Some pleated ribbon, and then some picot ribbon finished the card.
