Merci - JUGs #55

The JUGs (#55) challenge this week is a color challenge:  black, cream & kraft.  When I saw the challenge colors I immediately thought of the Hero Arts set Paris.   I stamped the Eiffel Tower image on Vintage Cream with True Black ink and trimmed it out.  I cut a piece of True Black cardstock, punched one long edge with the EK Success bracket punch and adhered it to the card front.  Tied some Vintage Cream grosgrain around the card, adhered the Eiffel Tower, added the sentiment "Merci" and I was done!   I love it when my ideas come together so quickly.



Thanks for taking a peek... hope you had a wonderful weekend. 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Kraft, Vintage Cream & True Black; Ink:  True Black; Stamps:  Hero Arts Paris; Ribbon:  PTI Vintage Cream grosgrain; EK Success bracket punch
