The Kraft Journal #166 Paris

Hi!

Are you ready for a new challenge at The Kraft Journal? I love the theme this week- Paris/France. I have always wanted to go there, so in my mind I am there {grin}. Maybe one day~
I started with a card base of Buff Ivory cardstock which I matted with some cream and black patterned paper from DCWV.  I chose an elegant die-cut to use to cut a piece of Buff Ivory cardstock to stamp a collection of Paris themed images in gray ink.  Using Blackboard Stock Paper, I used a file from the Silhouette store to cut the Eiffel Tower image to add to the center of the focal area.

I took a length of Oatmeal Cream Hand Stained Bias Tape to create a fussy bow and embellished with a flower for a finishing touch. 

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Paris France creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am sharing at: Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes, Just B Creative - April Linky Party. 

Hope you have a great start to your week!
~Tammy~

Ooooh la-la ia right!!! I adore that background paper with the lines of pretty patterns and I love that you kept the eiffel tower a solid black. Pretty pretty card Tammy!! Sounds like you've been BUSY!! Blogger was being a bugger for me today. The blogs I follow weren't showing up and then some were missing. UGH...so frustrating!
