J'aime Paris

This week has been so busy “arty-crafty” wise. Which is always a good thing! I was soooo excited about the theme in the City Crafter Challenge blog “I love Paris” that I just kept thinking of new things I wanted to do with “Paris” label on them.
And that’s because I LOOOOVE Paris! I went there with my lovely Mr K in July 2006. Below a couple of my fav piccies from the trip ;-)

This is what I created for my j'aime Paris bonanza:

For the front of the card I used a sketch from Midnight Madness by Priscilla MMSC54.

I have recently fallen in love with easel cards so had to try this again! This way I get to decorate all sides of the card, hence my entry to Crafty Cardmakers challenge #21 Inside Out.

The colour scheme fitted perfectly Playdate Cafe Challenge #30 with pale yellow, light green and pink.


And I really love the quote from the sentiment, I think it’s really inspirational. It should be perfect for entering the Gingersnap Creations #55 Random Redhead - Quotes.

The quote sentiment has been designed by Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy Stamps.

Challenges that I am also entering:Paper Sundaes – Easel card
Something Completely Different - Paris

I would love to hear what you think ;-). Thanks for looking!

Love it! This is soft and pretty, and yet the vintage image adds the charm of old Paris to it. Love the all the little details and texture too.
