I really LOVE this card. It has taken me a while to get this card posted simply because I enjoyed looking at this beauty on my desk for a while. Now that I think about how I came up with this card, it seems a little funny. I had been playing with my new stamps that day and I experimented with all these elements. I knew I wanted to use the Newsprint DSP so I cut some of that up. I had seen people stamp images right on the DSP so I tried that too. Then I remembered a technique I used to love doing: antiquing (or sponging). I loved it so much that all my projects had some sort of antiquing done to it which is why I had to stop using it for a while. I sponged the edge of the 'Amour' sentiment and tapped the same sponge on to the Eiffel tower image. Once that was done, I had to come up with a card base. What is a card without a base, right? So I stamped Crumb cake ink on to crumb cake card stock. I then punched some Cherry Cobbler card stock using the Scallop Trim Border punch. I literally tied all the pieces together with a big black ribbon. I really LOVE how this all came together. It was a hodgepodge mess when I was creating it but it came out to be SUCH A BEAUTY!!
Have I said I love this card??
