April in Paris Blog Hop


Join me here on Rue de Champs E'lsees for my part of this fabulous little Paris tour. If you came here from Rue de St-Louis-en-I'lle (Georgia's blog) then you are in the right place.

Isn't this a great image? Actually they all are, but I really like this one, especially the sentiments that come with it. My image was colored with Copic markers, cut out and then backed with a piece of black card stock. I used a Fiskars border punch along the side piece and then added some small rhinestones in the openings. To finish my card, I added some hot pink brads. I picked this sentiment because I love that song. I had it played at our wedding as we walked out of the church after the ceremony.

Now for your next stop on your tour, head over to Rue Dauphine (Jana's blog) for another fabulous project. If you get lost along the way, head back over the the S2G Challenge Blog for your road map. Don’t forget to play along with us for our Twisted Thursday Challenge. The TWIST is to use the word MERCI on your card/project.
