CR84FN41 - Paris

The colors this week for  CR84FN41 had me inspired right away. I created two cards really quickly. You get to see one of them now, the other is for next week. :)



How about Paris in Spring?  I started with the focal image of the Eiffel tower and just kept layering it on. :)

The stamps are all from Stampendous.  The main image is a new stamp and the background stamp is from the Eiffel Tower set. The background paper is My Minds Eye with a little stamping and distressing.


The inspiration photos for CR84FN41:
