amour ~ Holly in Paris

There is a fabulous sketch by Karen over at Dottie's World this week and also a {prize} which is well worth playing for.

This is my third week as guest designer and I got a chance to play with the fabulous new designs by Louise from Holly and Madison's World Tour.
For the sketch 'The scalloped edge merely depict some sort of fancy edge. It doesn't have to be scallops but you MUST provide a fancy edge of some description, this is not an element that can be changed.'
Here is what I came up with:
The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye ~ Beats of my heart. I cut a fancy heart border with my Fiskars border punch and layered it in two colours, before adding a little ribbon trim. The heart is a piece of grunge board which I had made for another project and hadn't used.

The image is Holly in France and I coloured her with my copics.
Well on this particular day she is visiting Paris. The Eiffel Tower stamp and sentiment is by Penny Black, which I embossed with my Tim Holtz ~ Distress Powder.
All other brads and ribbons were from my stash.

Thank you for looking.
