(Sure doesn't look like a limited supply card). This week's Limited Supply challenge is to create a card that is somehow tied to a president -- even if it's removed by several degrees. This is inspired by Thomas Jefferson, who served as ambassador to France in the 1780s (before the Eiffel Tower was erected, I'm sure, even tho I didn't research that).

The Eiffel tower definitely came later, 1889 if I remember right, but this card certainly gets my vote. DH even went ice-skating on the first level one year when we were there in December, so the sparkly snowy look is spot on. I don't have a good head for heights, so it was enough for me to have climbed up that far without adding the skating on too :D.

How lovely! Makes me smile, because my one excursion to Europe was to see my husband when the ship pulled into Marseilles. We took the bullet train to Paris and went to all the major tourist attractions there, including the Eiffel Tower. Aaaah, romantic memories!
