I Love Paris Card

Standard

Good morning all. I’m dropping in this morning to share a card a created with a variety of patterned papers and an image from my Paris Cards Digital Images Collage.

I Love Paris with Daisies Card 1I took the color inspiration from the tag with the yellow from the daisy and the dark border.  With the tonic edger I gave it a really grungy distressed edge. The honeycomb embossed tag was a leftover scrap from another project….score!!!! I just added a dark circle of cardstock and a eyelet. Gotta love when you can work with scraps. I found that little wonder button on a fun shopping-dinner trip I took with my fav Vintage Chicks and I’ve been dying to use it.

I Love Paris with Daisies Card 2These super gorgeous flowers are from Petaloo and the Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon Yellow Double Faced Satin. I did Ink it quite a bit to create an aged look.

I Love Paris with Daisies Card 3Papers are a mash up of Webster’s Pages and My Mind’s Eye.

Paris Cards Digital Image Collage are available for instant download : )
