It's my Mum's 77th birthday tomorrow. I've made a card for her with a Paris theme as she is going to Europe later this month. I've decided to use the colours of the CR84FN53 challenge (Pink, Aqua and Neutral) and the Retro#9 sketch. The Kaisercraft Bonjour collection have a lot of beautiful colours and I spent last night cutting out butterflies, flowers and a crown which suited the layout of the card.
Here is my card using two HA flowers and sentiment stamped in Bubblegum, and a crown from the KC Bonjour collection. The three elements were mounted on dimensional foam. Yes, I would love to go to Paris one day!! We are taking Mum to the Opera for her birthday to see Turandot, her Italian lessons will come in handy as the opera is all in Italian!! Thanks for dropping by!
