Paris Birthday Card

Happy Saturday!

Our Craft Lounge has a sketch challenge this week and Simon Says Stamp and Show has a challenge called 'Take your pick...London, Paris, or NY.'

I chose Paris, flipped the sketch, and made a birthday card for Wolfgang. For those of you that don't know, Wolfgang lived for many years in Paris and Nice, and sometimes thinks he's French rather than German!

Supplies used: SU Chocolate Chip & Very Vanilla, and The Paper Co. Matte Marble CS, Creative Imaginations PP, Emboss It and Versafine Vintage Sepia Ink, Gold Embossing Powder, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Accents Dies, Pearls, Simplicity Ribbon, OCL Out for a Spin (sentiment) & Vintage Traveler (images) , and SU Vintage Labels (HB sentiment) Stamp Sets, and misc. piece of chain.

The card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. Next I plan to make a matching envelope/box. I hope I don't misplace the card (like I did last year) before Wolfgang's birthday.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lisa, your Parisian birthday card is really striking! I love your Fleur DI Les die cut you've used on this! The Parisian images you've also incorporated really make a wonderful card! Thanks for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
