Paris in the Spring "Time"

Hi Dreamers!
Hope your weekend was great!   Mine was super fun with an all day card making event on Saturday.  Even though we had snow last night here in Michigan, USA, I wanted to share a Spring themed card with you today.  I used lots of Spring colored CS and a stamp of the Eiffel Tower from The Stampsmith's Paris Full Sheet.     I called this project Paris in the Spring "Time".  See why!

  • I stamped the Eiffel Tower with a Kaleidacolor Pad - Creole Spice
  • Then covered the image with Versa-Mark ink
  • Cover with UTTE and heat emboss
  • Add another layer of UTTE

Look at the cool effect you get with the UTTE!

  • Layer the image with black and white CS
  • Add to a white card base layered with green and yellow CS

  • Tie the Eiffel Tower ribbon in  a big bow.  I bought this ribbon at Hobby Lobby and have been dying to try it out on something.  This project was prefect!!
  • Add the clock with a piece of wire ---Paris in the Spring "Time"---get it!??!  LOL
  • Add the yellow rhinestones to the background area. 

What a cheerful card!  This was a fun one to make.  And, I finally was able  to use this ribbon on something!!  

How about a few challenges for my Spring "Time" card??!!
