So, carrrying on the theme of holiday snapshots, here's the next one from my travels through my stamp stash.  Another one layer card, same method as the previous card, but this time I reverse-masked the image and dusted Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass and Dusty Concord distress inks over the sky.

The challenge at CASE Study is to case this card from JJ Bolton:

I took the world theme and narrowed it down to Paris, used a similar font for the sentiment, and borrowed the bright pink and turned it into rocket red.

The challenge at The Paper Players is a one layer card (my favourite):

And the challenge at Simon Says is Travel and/or Cityscapes.

Eiffel Tower from Oxford Impressions
Washi from Kaisercraft
Bonjour from Royal Langnickel Clear Choice Stamps

Au revoir!
