A Parisian Theme (Posted by Elaine)

One little word on the Pretty Poppies plate sent me off on a French theme for this card.


I started by printing a monochrome background from the Delightful Damask CD onto white pearlescent card. I embossed the large damask design from the new Dusky Damask plate in a gold black metallic EP. This shows a little better in the second picture.


I added a torn panel of damask patterned vellum and embossed my sentiment. I added a Die-Namics Eiffel Tower die cut in black and finished off the card with black organza ribbon, some red paper roses and black gems.
