Paris in Spring



Morning Peeps, I am totally chuffed to see so many lovely pieces of artwork creeping into my Spellbinder blog celebration, if you missed my post you can find it here, still plenty of time to join in for a change of winning some of the Spellbinder dies.

As it's Monday it means my weekly share of my Prickly Pear DT piece and with Valentines at the end of the week what better than something with the Tour Eiffel, surely one of the most romantic Cities in the World. I have stuck with the traditional colours, Pan Pastels, a rose embossed panel and the lovely Paris Heart stamp, the banner is empty for you to add your own sentiment and I have used the very fitting Paris in Spring one.

Have a good Monday all.

I do like the way you echoed the shabby distressed look of the background gingham with your colouring of the stamped image . Your ribbon adds a lovely touch placed going under the the scalloped heart edge & is particularly effective with bing able to see the embossed roses through it.
