France for a Friend

I received a phone call the other day from a Friend who needed a card specially made for her brother who is moving to France for a year, so i had to put on my thinking cap and come up with something special.  I decided to use a "Vintage" look to this card. It is a Le Eifel Tower shaker box card using Stampendous "Fragments" as the shaker part.

Gorgeous card! Such a beautiful image and design!! So pretty!

I think you may have uploaded your card in the wrong challenge though. It was in our Kid's Challenge and I think it needs to be in our Anything Goes challenge. I will see if Lols can move it for you into the right place. :)

Thank you very much for joining us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
