Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #241

Hey Everyone

What I love about challenges is that I get to try layouts and colours combinations that I wouldn’t normally try. This sketch from Create with Connie & Mary is a layout that I would never have come up with myself, so I probably would never’ve made this card if it wasn’t for this great sketch!


I’ve been wanting to use this gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Eiffel Tower paper since I opened the pack.  I’ve never found the right sketch – until now…..  As you can see I’ve really let this fabulous Fan Fair DSP do all the work on my card. The sketch worked best when I flipped it on it’s side – this way you get the full effect of the Eiffel Tower.  I stamped the three images from Postage Due and punched them out with my 1 inch square punch. I then matted them with Sahara Sand cardstock punched with my Postage Stamp Punch.  The fourth square is stamped with French Foliage and then I added a single flower from Stampin’ Up!s Flower Trim with some Sahara Sand leaves.  I joined all four squares with Vintage Trinket brads and finished it off with a big Very Vanilla seam binding bow.


We’d love for you to join us this week – head over to Create with Connie & Mary and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by.
