There are some beautiful entries for this challenge contest. I've put something together here using SU Parisian Summer DSP. I used the SU Carte Postale greeting "Merci" to kind of go along with the Parisian theme!!! Aren't I so smart??? NOT!!!
As usual, this card took me to places I never planned to go. I was utterly shocked when I finished it because I had all the papers together and couldn't make it work. Usually if I hang with it long enough or take a little break, it works its way out. I think it did on this one considering how it looked about 1/2 hour before I finished it. I finished it off with some pretty sparkly gold ribbon on 2 corners lined with gold beads. That was kind of an after thought.
I hope you enjoy it and if you have a quick moment in your busy day, let me know what you think!!!
Good luck to everyone who participates in this challenge contest!

Wow, is this ever beautiful, Pam! I adore the colors, the papers, and the flourished corners, as well as the classy touch with finishing off the inside. So beautiful! Thanks for the link to this challenge, too! I love challenges and had not heard of this one.
