Amore! Last weekend my cousin Scott treated me to dinner in a romantic restaurant in the mountains 8,000ft above sea level. There was a gorgeous view of the snow covered mountains overlooking Salt Lake City, Utah. This paper doily was under my cup of soup. I snatched mine (and Scott's) and carefully placed them in my purse to recycle for a card.
BasicGrey Challenges current challenge is "Recycled." I had these BasicGrey 6x6 Wisteria papers on my workspace for months; I just couldn't make a card come together. Today I challenged myself to make a card with those chosen papers.
Then I went in search of a sketch for inspiration. I found a "Sketch and Sparkle" challenge at The Pixie Cottage:
I used a SU gem brad for my sparkle (dot of the "i" in "Paris.")
And the inspiration did not end there...
Order of the Opus Gluei challenge is "Springtime in Paris"
Paper Cutz challenge is "Use 3 Patterned Papers"
Die Cuttin Divas challenge is "Spring is on the Way"
I recently purchased a Cricut cartridge called "Summer in Paris." I used that cartridge for the first time today to cut both the Eiffel Tower and "Paris" from two different BG papers. I used a spring floral BG paper as the background.
