Used black, white + brown for colors. Used Tim Holtz Eiffel Tower embossing folder on Kraft brown layer. On the vellum layer I stamped TH journey sentiment & Paper Smooches love sentiment. Used heat tool to dry the ink quicker so it would not smudge on the vellum. Added some cool brown & black dotted jute/ribbon that Michaels has on sale this wk, reg price $2.99, on sale buy 3 for price of 1.

I've never been to Paris or anywhere in France. As far as out of the US I have been to the Bahamas, Toronto, Canada & Ontario, Canada. I photographed the card with a World Atlas in background that I gave my hubby for an Anniversary gift years ago and in it I wrote 'You mean the World to me.'
