Christmas in Paris


This was another ordered card by the same young lady who ordered the dress form card. She did challenge me I can tell you. She spent a weekend in Paris with her boyfriend a little while before Christmas and wanted to incorporate Paris into his Christmas card. Luckily I have a Tim Holtz French stamp set and once I stamped that onto kraft I found the card came together easily. I liked the way the Christmas tree charm echoes the shape of the Eiffel Tower.

This is my DT card for Winter Wonderland where our theme this week is travel. Remember it doesn't have to be a Christmas card so the possibilities are endless. We are so lucky to have 2 fabulous new sponsors
