I just can't help myself. I love making French cards!
I haven't had time to make a card in over a month. This has been in the works during the last month. A little bit here, a little bit there.
I found a glitter roll at Michael's with the flourishes and fleur de lis that I've been wanting to use and what better way to use it than with a French themed card!
I used MME The Station DP and a border punch at the bottom which you can't see in the photo b/c of the ribbon I placed in front of it - who knew???
Framed the Eiffel Tower with 2 nesties. I sponged the first one with the image and used the dp for the matted nestie behind it. The image was cut out and popped up. I added crystal effects and a sprinking of glitter to it for a more noticeable focal point.
The rest was the glitter roll and a hand-made lace ribbon flower I made a long time ago and hadn't used. I don't even remember how to make it. I saw it on You Tube and now don't know where it was. Oh well....
Thanks for taking a look and I'll be by to check up on my buddies and comment as soon as I can.

...sure itís got a catchy beat, but can you stamp to it?

Hey, Sista Pam! Your French themed card is strikingly handsome, I must say! I can see your border punch on the inside, btw. Beautiful sponging and lacy flower, and I love how you stamped the tower twice and cut one out; very dimensional! Did you know Mike is a 100% Frenchman? Course that doesn't make me French! (Oh, that's why I used the French Script on my card today, it's going to his sister.) I love the clean crispness of this beauty~Hugs
