Meet me in Paris.

Travelling Around the World, is our new theme over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, for challenge No 11. So if you could choose anywhere in the world , where would it be.
 Pop over and see where we are all heading off to and  get all the details.
Although I have to say that at this time of the year, my choice would be definately be, at home with my loving family and good friends.
You can also get an advanced note about  of our first challenge for 2012

However,  I chose Paris as my destination and with it the memories came flooding back of days long past and many happy holidays in France.
For this card I used stamps by Chocolate Baroque ,Darkroom door and a random stamped background..
The  tag reads 'Secrets Travel fast in Paris',  I enjoyed playing with the shrink plastic again to reduce the size. Colouring used was tumbled glass, tattered rose distress inks and watercolours.
The trimmings are all from my stash.

Thankyou for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.
