Paris is Always a Good Idea

When I think of a dream vacation, I think of traveling to Paris.  This dream vacation has been on my mind lately.  I don't know why, but I knew I could I had to create a Paris themed card.
Fun Stampers Journey has a great new collection called Paris Vintage.  For this card I used the  saying, "Paris is always a good idea" from the Going Places stamp set from the Going Places collection and the Eiffel Tower from the Love Paris stamp set from the Paris Vintage Collection.  In the collection, there is a paper pack that has a great assortment of papers to add to the Paris theme and I inked around the edges of the paper with River Stone Ink and attached this to  the base of my card.
I then stamped the Eiffel Tower in Rock Candy on the Butter Cream Cardstock.  Taking my Oatmeal Cookie Ink pad, I stamped the Postage Stamp randomly on the Butter Cream Cardstock. and added this to the card.
Before adding anything else, I used Bubble Gum and Silver Silks to the whole card, by tapping it with my finger.
I then added a strip of Bubble Gum Cardstock, distressed with River Stone Ink.  Next I took the small heart button from the Journey Color Buttons II and threaded the button with Journey Twine in Natural and placed the button at the top of the Bubble Gum strip.
With foam pop ups, I added the sentiment.  The last finishing touch was to add the Pearls to the bottom of the image.
"Paris is always a good idea", even if it is only in my dreams right now.  Enjoy!
