Thanks for a great sketch Roxie, I had a trip down memory lane on this one, my first trip to Paris FRANCE was when I was 16 and I'll have to admit to having been to Paris TX and AR!...I like the big PaRiS much better! My card is filled with lots of fun details, on a base of white cs I stamped the French Script BG in Adirondack Slate. I off centered it as I wanted the spiral edge of my next layer to show. Not having the punch, I pierced the notebook paper stamped image with bigger needles and cut the ends out...not too bad? The notebook paper layer is doublemates in creamy cocoa stamped in latte. This stamp is by the Queen's Drawers and is UM. The PaRis image is by Hero Arts, it is stamped on Basic Grey Mellow group,the cloud one with Versafine in Olympic Green and embossed with clear. I distressed this quite a bit. The very cool license plate border is also my Queen's Drawers and is on SU soft sky with Heritage Inks Timeless Sepia and lightly ep'ed. My journey couples are from Cat's Life Press,um'ed. They are on unknown RAK paper...with a dainty piece of the finest Parisan Lace behind them! I cut out the harlequins to draw the eye into the definition of Journey. My parisan stamp is from the Su set Friendships of the Heart, stamped with Broken China and slipped into the cuttlebug postage stamp diecut. The wonderful biwing airplane and the postcard stamps are from a local craftsman. So I give you PaRiS today, wherever you might be, you can always go back in a memory! Thanks for your comments and your looks!

Very cool !!! You are the master of the collage!! Great work with your non spiral punch!! I especially love how the plane is both on the paper and the other layer - just perfect! Love the zig zag bottem and the postage stamp in the upper right corner!
