Paris Elegance

I was meant to have blogged this last night but I was shattered when I got in from shopping, so it has had to wait until this morning. This is another family birthday card, only another 3 to go this month :-)

I have used this topper from the Everyday Essentials kit by My Paper Stash. I teamed it with Prima Botanical Papers. Here is a closeup of the image.

To make the paper ribbon across the card the toppers are bordered by printed card so I cut a strip across & added a couple of brads.

I took the inspiration of the sketch through to the inside of the card. The frame was the negative from the topper, which I cut round & layered on to white card to create the space for me to write my message. I again cut a strip of the printed card to add to the layout. x Clare x
