DDABC12E: the alphabet challenge is on the letter E this week. (See post 3072 in the Alphabet Challenge thread for more details.) The double challenge was to make a happy everything card. I didn't do that as this is a happy birthday card.
For the letter E: Embossing - both heat and dry, the embossing folder is Elegant Bouquet, sentiment begins with E and, of course, the Eiffel Tower!
I dry embossed the background and then sponged color onto the flowers and stems. Heat embossed the Eiffel Tower, stamped and punched the sentiment, also sponged it and popped it up. Then I matted it on black and mounted it on the card base.
This is a birthday card for my sister-in-law who has a French connection.
Thanks for looking.

Catherine, this is stunning! This reminds me of Paris in spring time (even though I have only seen Paris in photos) with these beautiful "cherry blossoms". I am not familiar with the embossing powder you used, but it sure makes your Eiffel tower pop! Wow! This sentiment works so perfectly with this gorgeous card you have made! I am putting this right into my favs! ~Karen.

Exquisite. Love the heat embossed Eiffel tower. It has such a unique color. The embossed flowers in the corner create a foreground effect. Awesome. Wonderful sentiment and it has an E word. Excellent job with letter E, you managed to do a lot with the letter and create a beautiful birthday card. Well done. TFS
