From Paris with Love

Happy Sunday All!

Just wanted to share a shabby card I made for the current challenges at the Kraft Journal (Paris or France) and at Craft Hoarders (use that non-used stamp).  

Paris definitely holds a special place in my heart: it was on the Eiffel Tower that my husband proposed.  I said "Yes" in case you are wondering.  :)  It was an amazing time.  We spent 10 incredible days in Paris.  Every morning we would wake up early, grab a baguette from the local baker, hop on the metro and see as much of the city until late in the evening.  Three days were spent at the Louvre alone, one day at the Rodin museum and Impressionist museum, and countless hours just exploring.  It was beautiful, surreal, awe-inspiring...absolutely perfect.  It is impossible to think about any of that trip and not smile.  

Sorry!  I digressed...on to the card...
Obviously I have happy thoughts about Paris so I wanted to go with happy colors on the card and to also include a heart.  A nicety about the card: excluding one of the papers, all of the paper used was from my scrap bin.  (I need to dive into that bin more often!)  The card base was made from Kraft card stock.  The ivory heart was die cut using Spellbinders Lace Hearts die set and the Eiffel Tower is Kraft card stock die cut using the Die-namics Eiffel Tower die.  The stamp is from JustRite's stamp set Greetings From Paris.  I have had this set for a long while and never used it.  It fits the card well and the font is so pretty.

I am off to give my hubby a huge hug and show him the card.  
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you all have a great Sunday!
Hugs,
Kathy Jo
