This is one of those cards that I started and had no idea where I was going with it and suddenly I hated it… and then I got one of those skillets moments (where you see the rainbow… LOL!!!) and it just came together after that moment in an instant! I hope you like it too. There is just one thing that bothers me and it’s that line below the embossing from the folder, I know I read some where that there was a way not to get those lines, so I have to look for that link again. (if you know what I am talking about just let me know).

Let’s first start w/ I LOVE VERVE STAMPS!!!! (now that I have gotten out of my chest, I can continue w/ this post).
And my favorite card! ok… when I saw last Sunday’s sketch @ 365 I got goosebumps. Then I thought of a crocodile card…. and I told my sweet friend Vicki that she could make the crocodile and I would do the Eiffel tower… she did an awesome job w/ the crocodile check it out!
This is such a simple card, but I think it is Hallmark material! LOL!!!!! (I am feeling good about myself w/ this card!) It was hard to figure out how to cut out the Eiffel tower, I was hoping I had a cricut cartridge, but no luck. Then I saw a SCAL cut and almost bought SCAL just to cut the Eiffel tower (of course I re-considered my stupidity). So I went to look for images (thanks to Vicki’s awesome idea), and couldn’t find one that had “it”… you know “it”… the “it” factor. So I did this myself, and I am so proud of it!!!!!!!
Close up, for those that know me you might be surprised that the heart is purple and NOT red. (for those that don’t know me… I don’t like purple and RED is my fav color). Some how this was in my scrap pile and it looked nice against the navy blue so I used it and believe it or not I LIKE IT.
Challenge: (I know only two challenges A SHOCKER!)
