Toujours Paris

Well, we didn't get our trip to France at Easter, goodness only knows when that will happen, but for now we can only dream about it!



I've die cut a Paris skyline  and backed it with a piece of origami paper, then layered up and added to a larger white square finished with French Hearts ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and a stamped sentiment. The background paper is printed to look as if it  is textured IYSWIM - perfectly smooth and yet it looks as if it would feel suede-y if you ran your hands over it. The finished card is a large 20cm square one. (I've had to do a lot of thinking in inches recently  as I've been doing some stitching from American patterns, and I very nearly wrote a 20 INCH square card. Now that really would be a big one!)

This is fabulous now I'm still in the dark on how large it is, I never totally made the switch. I love the colours the navy just makes the focal point pop. gorgeous ribbon. The Paris skyline is perfect for dreaming of a trip. Thanks for adding to Shopping Our Stash for the "oh,the places you will go"(but not this summer)

What a great card. I hope you get to France when this is all just a memory.
It is sad to think of our cancelled trips but better to be safe and alive.

We were to go to Spring Training for the ball teams in Arizona and then travel to San Francisco to cross some bucket lists places off my Sister in law's list. She like to watch ball games in the big stadiums in the USA and keeps busy travelling to do this one stadium at a time. We were going too as Al wanted to see the Golf championship in San Francisco where the ball game was going to be.
