Paris Sparkle and Lucky Green

 Hello I have 2 special cards to share today that havent gotten their day on the Blog... 
All about PARIS
I've used Gracie's fabulous New Paris Themed Digi Stamp. Love this for its exquisite Roses and lovely Eiffel Tower. I first Printed this digi quite large, then adhered to dbl sided sticky sheet and covered with Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels. Then backed with Heavy White Cardstock and dry embossed with the Bed of Roses EF by Sue Wilson. Then this panel was cut down and matted on glittered polkadot DP and black CS. I stamped and heat embossed the layered die cuts with Gold EP. Added Golden ribbons bow, Gold Button and Gold half Pearls. Finished this off by spraying with Golden Glow Glitter Spray for a super shimmery and sparkly Card. (Especially when the light catches it perfectly). :)
