  8. You have done it again! Another beautiful creation that made me really homesick for Paris...even though I've never been. I adore the dimension you added with the buttons and ribbon and I was really impressed with your calligraphy skills! I thought that was a stamp but you did it by hand! Wow! Really great card that really showcases your talents. I'm so glad that you share your creations with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
