Paris Amour

I had this card all ready to upload and post yesterday but my ph0to program refused to work. Thankfully, it booted up today - don't know what the problem was - but glad it's back.

Challenges for this card -
SCS Sketch Challenge - Sketch
Color Throw Down - Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip.

This card brings back the memories of the summer and the fantastic time I had there with my husband.

I wanted to add something to the card and finally settled on making my own little charms. I was pleasantly surprised that although the key, crown
and tower images were small, they still turned out okay with shrink paper. I had initially tried to stamp them with the chocolate chip, but the ink didn't really dry well on the plastic, and also didn't show up that well once I opted for good old Staz On. I will definitely be shrinking more images in the future!!!!!

We have a wonderful sunny day here today - I hope your Saturday is going well and is also full of sunshine. Thanks for stopping by - Joan
