A French Card

My stepmum Brenda (who lives in France) asked me if I could make a couple of cards for some French friends of theirs, Annie and Andre with a French theme. In France they do not give each other cards so I think this is a nice idea to show them what we do for birthdays etc.

I have used red white and blue colour card which are the colours of the UK and French Flags to add a French/UK feel. The image of the Eiffel tower is an Art-Kure rubber stamp and the chic french lady is a Clarity clear stamp. I have used the masking technique so the lady looks like she is in front of the tower and I have also masked her dress and hat to give it a pattern using a corner stamp.

I have left it black as I thought it looked nicer that way. I then used my Punch around the page double loops Martha Stewart punches around the edge and matted onto blue card and then onto my base card.
I have cut out the name Annie with my Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet and stuck the letters down with double sided tape.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
Doodle Palace Card using the colours of your flag
