The Paper Players #105 - Jaydee's Sketch

As soon as I saw Jaydee's sketch for this week, I knew exactly what card I wanted to create!  We have friends heading off to Europe soon, & their itinerary includes Paris, & in particular, the Eiffel Tower.  The panel in the sketch housed my Tower perfectly!  Thanks Jaydee.  :)

Here's my bon voyage card:-

& here is the sketch, which I have mirrored (because the tower just didn't look quite right positioned on the other side, lol):-

I've used the Parlor Prints background, stamped in Versamark & clear embossed, to get that luxurious, shiny background.  The Tower has been embossed with black embossing powder.  The sentiment was first coloured with a Versamark marker & then coloured with a Baja Breeze marker, stamped & clear embossed.  To get the longer than normal tag shape, I've punched the word window first, then used the tag punch to create the straight & tabbed ends (there are some pictures in this post, if you would like more detail).

The rest of the Team have some delightful creations to inspire you, so make sure you visit them all & then play along:-
