Sketch - DT - Challenge

Today's "DT Post Card"

Hey everyone! Welcome to another week over a Stamps & Fun - Creativity!  This week is a Sketch Challenge.

I just love making vintage styled paris/travel items.  This week's sketch challenge I thought about making up another Paris card.  I (if you believe) am still using my old paper line "Paris Nights".  I have had this paper for awhile and still have just a bit left!

I inked all my papers with vintage photo distress ink.  Then I created a frame for my card using this grey card stock and I sewed this "print" paper to it around the edge as well as this roman numeral strip to this piece as well.  I then took a square of this greyish black paper and I used lots of pop dots to pop up this piece.  I then took my printed digi image and matted it up with some black card stock and then popped it up with more pop dots.  I love the layers on this card.  To embellish the card I used a Tim Holtz "imagine" metal piece and a a fleur golden element from Joulees.  To finish it up I added some gold bling to the left top hand corner.

I love this sketch and this card and how it came together.  Sometimes sketches can be frustrating trying to layer light/dark papers so it looks great, but I really love how it finished up!

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Please check out the other DT members' projects!  Thanks so much for joining me for this Challenge over at Stamps & fun = Creativity!
