Paris!

If anyone knows me at all, they know that Paris is my dream destination.  I have wanted to go there since a child and love everything French.  My father is French Canadian and we used to visit his parents in Montreal, PQ and so I learnt French too.  I love the language, although I am quite rusty now.  So today's card is dedicated to my dream destination.

I used Stampin Up card stock.  I used the World Map embossing folder on the back and then the top embossing folder is called Royalty.  Both folders are by Couture Creations.  They have some amazing embossing folders. The mini Paris tag was created from Stampin Up's punch and all the images are also from Stampin Up.  The gold ribbon is from a stash a friend gave me as they were all her left over bits.  Perfect for a card maker!! I used Perfect Pearls for the gold highlighting and distressed the top layer.

  1. This is really nice and I like the way the embossing folder made the backing paper look... it actually looks like it's two different colours.
    The gold ribbon is perfect for this and hey, I found out something new - I did not know you had a French heritage.

  8. Very pretty card! I'd love to go to Paris, too. I met and made friends with a chamber orchestra violinist last December. We've been emailing back and forth but what a treat to actually visit her. I wish you blessings on your Dream.
