Just a quick post because I finished our Thursday card. We all stamped the Penny Black 'bonjour!' stamp three times, colored, fussy cut and layered. Lola brought her Sizzix Eiffel tower die and while some went with sparkly pink or distressed red, I chose glossy black. That was as far as I got after two weeks.
Today, after organizing some of my new stamps and putting them away, I found the motivation to finish the card. First, I found the "Paris" in a Hero Arts set to be stamped in the corner of a quarter sheet of white. Then I added parts of the tree branch from the SU Thoughts & Prayers in Pear Pizzaz kissed with Forest Foliage. Since the tower was so solid, I die embossed the layer with diagonal lines.
The final embellishment was the flower for Mimi's beret. Alas I had only pink gems; but no worries, I colored over with a red sharpie. Everything assembled on a red card.
Mimi is now ready for her Paris adventure. Au revoir.
