Tilda in Paris




Today I would like to share a thank you card I made for my friend, Julie, who has a day spa here in town called April in Paris. I treated myself to a facial the other day, and it left me feeling incredibly relaxed and my skin feeling younger and rejuvenated. I hope she enjoys the card as much as I enjoyed the pampering!

The image is "Paris Tilda" from the Magnolia-licious Store, and she is colored with Prismacolor pencils. There are 4 different designer papers, buttons from my stash, the Eiffel Tower stamp is by Art Impressions, and the "merci" is by A Muse Artstamps. I used an EK Argyle punch on the dark gray paper, and MS eyelet on cream paper. This is done using the sketch from the CLP Challenge for April. Edges were distressed and inked with "Black Soot."
The one thing I'm not too fond of is the paper that I used for the Tilda image...too much texture with the pencils.
Live and learn.
C'est la vie, as they say in Paris!
