My card uses the achingly chic image Tres Francais, available from S2G here. I've coloured with Copics and Stickles, matting my image onto a Nestie oval and scalloped oval "out of the box" with the Eifffel Tower against the Cuttelbugged background. The DPs aren't easy to see, they are both Stampin' Up. I've added some stitching for texture and a further dry embossed line to pand bottom, using my Scor-Pal, for a bit of interest. I'm also entering the card for the Simon Says Challenge, movie time and dry embossing (there are lots of films based in Paris, all I can think of with the Eiffel Tower is the Lavender Hill Mob!), and also for Stamp Something's Stitch Something theme and Sew Many Challenges also appropriately shares the same theme of stitching.
