Je T'Aime

VLVJan2013

Having fun using some of my Christmas gifts :)  I couldn't wait to us my Eiffel Tower die and this sketch was perfect for it! 

In keeping with the French theme, I die cut a sparkly Eiffel Tower.  In real life if is far from sparkly - I've seen it, walked up it (when you still could) and it is really not all that wonderful up close. But when the sun shines on it or the moonlight hits it, you do begin to believe it can sparkle.

The sentiment is computer generated and I added lots of hearts, after all, it is the city of love :)  A perfect card for t his week's Paper Players challenge.

Thanks for dropping by and sharing a part of your day with me today!

What's more romantic that Paris? Your sparkly Eiffel Tower is the perfect addition to this already lovely card. Thanks for sharing it with The Paper Players!

Marisa, I hadn't seen this die before - it's awesome, especially with the glimmer paper. Tour Eiffel remains one of my favorite all time sites to see. I can always close my eyes and picture it against the Parisian backdrop - come rain, shine, night or day - it remains quintessentially such a romantic image. Thanks for taking me down memory lane with this gorgeous card
So glad you shared it with the Paper Players
