Paris Rain

I made this card at a recent Craft Retreat using borrowed dies. I tried using Distress Oxide Inks for the first time. I blended the background with Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick. I then splashed with some Perfect Pearls Mist for the spotty background. I decided to make a shaker card as I was learning how to make one at the retreat. So this is only my second attempt at making a shaker card! When I saw this die, I was estatic and was keen to make a card as I went to Paris for the first time with my sister two years ago. Seeing the famous landmarks on this die made me very happy! I've added some photos below that I took of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. I'm adding this card to the current Fusion Card Challenge - Paris Rain Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Layer it up and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Use more than one die. Thanks for dropping by!
