Taxi To Paris

Hello Nomad friends.  Getting back into the swing of things after a quick trip to the UK.   It was lovely to see my family after such a long time but now I am home, and Spring is coming.  Lots to do in the garden, but April is being a bit wild and the wind is knobbling cold, so I shall do a bit in the green house later.  But first.... it's the 10th of the month so time for a new challenge at Let's Squash It!!!   This month we want you to use embossing folders with Geometric and/or Repeating Patterns.   I grabbed one of my all time favourite folders by sizzix which is a lovely collage style folder called Eiffel Tower.

I embossed a pale blue panel, edged with teal ink and stuck it on a white card base.  I added a left over die cut piece that was hanging around on my desk.  It was the right colour and looked interesting, and then I grabbed a scrap of pizza box, embossed with sizzix A7 Artful Muse car folder, fussy cut and added to my scene.  A pre-printed happy birthday scrap, layered on a patterned card scrap and done!

Hop over to the challenge post to check out Jo's gorgeous inspiration and join the fun.   See you there.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

Great male card Gail! Hope you enjoyed your trip to the UK - but bet you were quietly pleased to be back home to your greenhouse. Endless pleasure to be had raising wee plants from seed.
