A PARISIENNE CARD & A CHRISTMAS EVENT...

Yolo! Always wanted to say that, LOL!
As you know, this month is Challenge-less. Funny, I've actually been
doing lots of cards. Maybe I'm afraid to start a LO - it might open
the floodgates & I'll want to do a challenge!
This card is Paris inspired for a future birthday for a
member of my family who is a
Francophile like me!
Naturally, I pulled out all the Paris bits I could find. It seemed to lean
towards vintage - so I went shabby chic with some stitching & lace!
The 'dream' stamp above is from Rubber Dance Art Stamps.
It's a beauty!. You can see some washi tape behind the lace,
& I've used a 'Stampin' Up' little Paris seal stamp.
I have to thank a pile of scrappy mates for contributing Stuff to this card!
My Mum gave me the Eiffel tower 'button', then Lizzy C, Mary B  &
Sanna L all contributed. Thanks girls;)
Meanwhile, look what JENNIFER GRACE is up to:
Frosty Festivities 2015 Crafty Blog Event at Jennifer Grace Creates
Her last event was really inspiring...so hope
you can make it along to this one!
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
