Eiffel Tower Card and a future blog hop!

I bought a bunch of mat stacks while I was on my trip at HL and Joanns.  I've never worked with them before as my craft stores out here don't seem to carry them.  I wanted to see how easy it was to layer!

I really wanted to use this SU! stamp set with the Eiffel Tower.  I thought it was so stinkin cute.  I embossed it with black embossing powder and added the metal photo corners.  The lace is some vintage ribbon and I just used my Exacto knife to cut slits so I could weave the ribbon through.  

I may not be around much because I'm back to working full time and working on my thesis (for my very last class!!!), but I will show love on your blog if you leave a comment. :) Also, mark your calendars, because August 8 (THIS MONDAY!) is my birthday and I'm having a blog hop with some of my best online buds!  Yup, it'll be Hello Kitty themed and I'm planning on having my first video up!  Also, LOTS of blog candy to be won!

See you there!

Hi Cely!

I love the look of this, so pretty and so Paris! This would look fabulous hanging up on a wall. You did a wonderful job with adding the ribbon the way you did. I really do like the colors too, great job!

I'm going to try and hop on Monday but if for some reason I can't I hope you have a very happy birthday!
