Time Out: Merci



Time is flying by and it's time for another challenge over at Time Out!  We're back with our home sweet home inspiration photo challenge. I immediately knew I wanted to use my PaperTrey Ink set that has the Eiffel Tower image in it along with my Hero Arts French Script stamp for the background.  I embossed the Eiffel Tower and then added distress ink around it to add a touch of color. This card was made several weeks ago and sent to my mum as a thank you note for a wonderful Christmas.  My dad's side of the family was French so we quite often say Merci and Je t'aime to one another.


There is so much to be inspired from this photo. I'd love to see you play along with us at Time Out.  Pop on over to the blog to check out the design team creations!
