Merci Paris

Hi everyone,

Are you surviving all the holiday madness?  One of the things Santa left under the tree for me were some new Spellbinders die cuts.  I just couldn't wait to open them!

I stamped some French images on a Labels Twenty-Eight #3 and sponged the background in Brilliance Pearlescent Beige & Bordering Blue.  On a Labels Twenty-Eight #4 I stamped Parlor Prints in Brilliance Pearlescent Beige then layered everything onto a Decorative Labels Twenty-Eight #3 cut from Bordering Blue paper.

Merci was stamped in StazOn Stone Gray and glued to the back of a pewter tag.  I don't think I can create a card anymore without making a triple loop bow from seam binding ... lol  Opaline pearls in sky accent the edges and a flat back pearl graces the center of the bow -  so Parisian!

The background paper on this card is from Cameo Shoppe on Etsy.  She has a cute shop with digital images.  This one is called Shabby French Ephemera.

The inside sentiment was stamped in Stazon Stone Gray.  A few flowers were colored with Spica glitter pens.  Flourishes from SU's Everything Eleanor set were stamped in Bordering Blue.

I have a few more thank you cards to create and then it's onto Valentine's Day.  Oh my, where does the time go?
