New Getting Geographical Challenge

Hi. Happy Monday!
It is time for a new challenge at the Stamping Vacation Challenge Blog. We have changed the State Your State challenge to Getting Geographical. Now we will include places from all over the world. And , this month the geographical location is Paris.
You have until March 28th to complete this challenge. All challenge entries qualify for the monthly $ 25 gift certificate drawing. Lets see what you can come up with. Make a project and link it up over at the Stamping Vacation blog. I have a stamp set that features fabulous images of Paris: The Paris Full Sheet from The Stampsmith Shop and I used one of the images from this set. I have continued with my stamping on tissue paper theme. Take a look at my card.

The Eiffel Tower is stamped with black ink on bright blue tissue paper. This is a piece of tissue I had just laying around. It probably was in a gift bag. So, I guess you could say I am recycling. I cut the tissue with a Sizzix die. To get the tissue to cut well layer a piece of cardstock under the tissue. The tissue will cut perfectly and you will have a tag to layer under the tissue on the card. The card base is Textured So Saffron from Stampin' Up. The DP is from ATD. I added a strip of Black ric rac and a sheer black ribbon. The sentiment is also from the Stampsmith Paris set. Here are a couple of close up shots for you too.

I am also posting this card on the Stampsmith Design blog. Head over there for lots of inspriation.

Of course, I found a few Challenges for "Paris Tag".
