We are starting the week off with an uber cool, WTG.....Who's that Parisian Girl?  Wait until you see all the beautiful things the DT has done with her.  

I did a bit of background piecing on this ditty.  It's all done with some of my fave MyMind'sEye papers.  They have such a french feel to them with all the flourishes, so I knew they were prefect.  Plus, I loved the browns and blues with a touch of olive. I ♥ earth tones.

I stamped her 4 times, three on pattern paper, and once on x-press blending cs.  TIP: always start from the back and add your pieces, building towards the front.  So here, I added my background pieces first, then I colored my WTG with copics, and added her skirt last.  I cut her out and pieced her on top of my backgrounds.  Don't forget to add in some shading with your copics to help her "pop" off the page and give that more realistic look and feel.

When I designed this card, I also wanted to give a travel feel to it, so I went with a post-card-ish look.  Easy to do with the cool, First Class Friend die-namics (I also snuck in a few of the stamp elements from that set...the cancellation stamp).  I placed the beautiful new Eiffel Town die-namic in the middle and added the sentiment flag (First Place Award Winner die-namic) with some foam dimensionals attached with a brad.  It's curved a bit to give the feeling of it waving in the breeze. I'm sure it's quite breezy atop the Eiffel Tower.

You can also see I tucked in the newest border die-namic releasing this month. It's the Jumbo Monarch.  I love those giant dots at the end of each piece. Some seam binding and a vintage brad help give the finishing touches to this card.

Hop on over to Kim's Blog.  You'll be able to find all the details about this coming release over there.
