This is where I've been for the last few days...Rome!!! This is the Vatican......
 ...the Colloseum......
 ... and the Trevi (three streets) fountain. We had a great three night trip to Rome, saw what we wanted to see, walked miles and ate FAR TOO MUCH GELATI (Ice-cream). It was hot as hell, crowded but fascinating. We were glad to get home though even though it was really chilly when we got back to Gatwick. I won't be going anywhere in Europe in the summer again, I'll leave it for Spring or Autumn! Right, onto today's card.
My boss Jennie and her hubby have bought a farmhouse in France, they are in the process of doing it up, and have become really friendly with the villagers who live nearby. One of the village shop-keepers (I think it's the cafe proprietor) is leaving the village to move to Paris. Jennie asked me to make a suitable card, A4 sized, that all the villagers can sign, and this is what I came up with. I used g.c.d Paris Nights papers, and my favourite gun-metal mirri card (can't get enough of the stuff!). I cut a huge Eiffel tower from the gun-metal mirri along with a table,wine bottle & glass. I added a layered Prima bloom and a computer-gnerated sentiment (Lansbury font downloaded from Dafont.com) and a satin bow across the top left-hand corner.
Carts used:
Eiffel Tower- Everyday Pop-Up cards
Table-Kate's ABC
Wine bottle & glass-Summer In Paris
Shaped panel-Just Because Cards
Thanks for dropping by!
