Postcard from Paris – House of Cards

A new month starts and with it a new challenge at House of Cards. This month’s theme is love, which is very appropriate considering Valentine’s Day is only a couple of weeks away! It is absolutely a beautiful theme and I hope you find time to join us throughout the month with your creations! In a mission to inspire you, here is what I have created:

I was inspired on both the challenge theme and my new stamp set Parisian Postcard. Since I just got the stamp set, I enjoy thinking of different ways of using it. This time I framed the Eiffel Tower and fussy cut the beautiful vintage flowers to decorate the frame. I like the romantic design this card has and the dimension and texture I was able to add to it.

I have mentioned before here on the blog that I designed this patterned paper to match this stamp set. It was released as a freebie for a while and now it’s available here, in case you don’t own it yet!

I hope you liked my card and feel inspired to join us this month at House of Cards! I can’t wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!
