Exciting news today; I was promoted to supervisor in my unit at the Post Office.  I don't know whether to be happy or scared because this is a step in another direction.  I had been a Union officer for sixteen years, but now am crossing the line to the other side.

Talk about a step in another direction, this card is not my usual fare either. Compared to the card I made a few days ago found here, it is a bit grungy.  Lola die-cut this Eiffel tower in white for me that I didn't use on for my earlier card. 

Once I distress inked it - sort of old, rusty metal, I drew criss-cross lines by hand.  Then I found this gold patterned paper to use for the bottom half of the card.  The top part is a cream paper stamped with the SU French word background in Creamy Caramel.  The leaves overhanging are the stamp from  SU Thoughts & Prayers again stamped with Mellow Moss. 

The skunk, are you thinking Pepe le Pew, was probably the first stamp I purchased years ago from Dots (Close to My Heart).  The birds are a NBUS die by Memory Box that I received as a gift recently.  The sentiment is another gift and from the Hero Arts Paris set.  A few well-placed black gems finished the card.  All is mounted on a Mellow Moss card with black trim.

I am linking this at the Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge 247 since I have the bottom line: die-cut, pattern paper, and shade of yellow (gold).  There is a little blue and a tiny flower, too.

A warm welcome to my thirteenth follower, Therese.  Thank you for visiting... or "merci de m'avoir rendu visite".
