Bon Chance

Here's a card I've made using the inspirational sheet from Soartful Challenges with a theme of chance. As the tickets on the sheet had several languages on them, I decided to go for a Parisian theme. This also fits the latest challenge at Theme Thursday as the theme is Paris so I'm entering it in that one too.

To make the card, I printed out the ticket sheet and tore off the edges. I stamped Paper Artsy Backgrounds Plate 6 in black ink on blue card and tore the edges of this too.
I stamped B Line Designs Eiffel Tower and Paris directly on the ticket sheet in black ink. I stamped Rubber Stampede's Tip Your Hat in black on pink card, cut it out and coloured just the lips and beret with a raspberry pencil.
I assembled the card as shown with Dymo generated text and a butterfly cut from my book of butterfly illustrations.

This is brilliant Fliss! I have the 'tip your hat' stamp too, though I hardly ever get my wooden stamps out these day! Hope you are surviving the weather, still plenty of the white stuff here, though a bit grey now! Great news about your CDROM, will look out for it on C&C. Glad you found time for some challenges. xx
