Hello and welcome!
The card I made today is for my mother. I picked vintage Paris theme because she loves french and always wanted to go to Paris, so I thought I will give her a little bit of that.

I used this sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge
For a background I stamped SU French Script stamp onto white card and inked the edges with disstress ink. I used border embossing folders to make three panels, and inked them as well.
Eiffel tower stamp is from Kaisercraft Bonjour stamp set. Crochet flower is from my local craft shop, pink ribbon is from Docrafts Madame Payraud range. At last I added two tiny fanciful flourishes from Cheery Lynn and some pearls for a finishing touch. I hope you like it :)
