Hi Everyone
I have been playing in my studio today and wound up working with a new 12X12 piece of embossed paper from Canvas Corp. This floral sheet was a creamy color and was just calling my name so I bought it and looked at it for a few days before I decided what to do with it.

Well I have been working on a project using Pan Pastels so since those were on my desk, I decided to color with those.

Then after the coloring was done, I wanted to use an image that did not compete with the paper, so I decided on a stamped Eiffel Tower image and a tag and a really fluffy bow, all from my stash.

Stamps:  My Sentiments Exactly - Amour Sentiments
Paper/Card Stock
: Cream CS, White CS, Dk Green CS, 
Canvas Corp - Embossed  Paper 
Ink: Memento - Gray Flannel
AccessoriesRibbon, Craft-Dee BowZ  tool, dimensional foam, Pan Pastels

Well that is the card I came up with using that yummy embossed paper.Hope you like this one.
