Vintage Paris

I have felt like I am chasing my tail all day but somehow I have managed to catch up and even get the Inspiration Challenge on SCS done.  I love this site and was inspired by one of the small images that Stef chose -the one on the right!

This is a one layer card - very strange for me.  I started with patterned DP and stamped the Eiffel Tower in Distressing ink, followed that with embossing the floral image across it in bronze.  I then stamped the word 'Paris' and stamped off some french script onto it along with a couple of birds - it is very faint!!

The edge of the DP is torn and sponged with a strip of gold embossing underneath the torn edge...I finished off with a SU Die Cut Corner and three black half gems and some sponging in blue disressting ink.  This would have to be one of the quickest cards I have ever made and so different - I am not sure if I will get used to only one layer!!

Thank you for visiting and for the comments you leave - you are always so encouraging!!  I love knowing you have been!  It is Monday night here and everyone is winding down, I might even get some more crafting done - wahoo!  I hope you are having a great day!  God bless you!
