snowflakes... in paris

Hello friends!!   Popping in with a card that I made last night for two challenges, but unfortunately I couldn't get a decent photo of it so I will only be able to post it to one as the other challenge closed this morning.   The color combo is from the soon to close Color Throwdown #317 and the layout is from the now closed Freshly Made Sketches. 

After seeing the fabulous card that November Color Throwdown guest designer Petra created that incorporated the Eiffel Tower I knew I wanted to do something similar.  If you haven't checked out Petra's blog you really should as she is a fabulous card designer!  I used several different stamp sets (three in fact) to make this card.  The Eiffel Tower image is from the SU! set Artistic Etchings, the Penny Black set, a wish for peace, and the Verve set Holiday Treats.  The light blue I used is a little too light I think. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & black; SU! Wisteria Wonder; Inks:  SU! Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky & Memento Tuxedo Black; Stamps:  Penny Black, Verve & Stampin Up!; Baker's Twine:  Stampin Up!; Crystal Stickles

So lovely, Rosemary ... the graphic tower is fabulous with the soft, swirling flourishes and snowflakes ... and I think the light blue is perfect ... it adds to the light, airy feel of those snowflakes! Anita :)
