Here is this week's inspirational photo 

with a 

Theme:  Parisian

Inspiration photo compliments of:
French Style Chocolate Molds at Squidoo 

Here is my card for some added inspiration.  

STAMP: Postcard stamp (stamped pink on tag) from The Paper Company; Sentiment (Recollections).
PAPER: White cardstock; DP-Victoria Garden (Echo Park); 
INK: Tangelo and Angel Pink (Momento); 
EXTRAS:  Eiffel Tower die (My Favorite Things); Heart charm die (Paper Sweeties); lattice emboss folder (Cuttlebug); Tag die (Reverse Confetti); Coral ribbon; Coral prima rose; white prima flower; pink/white baker's twine; 

This was a slightly challenging project for me as my "Parisian" stock amounts to the eiffel tower die and "merci" sentiment stamp, both of which I have used on my card.  I used a tiny heart charm die from Paper Sweeties, stamped my sentiment on white cardstock, cut it into a tiny banner and glued it on the heart for a little charm sentiment.

I love the way the card turned out even with my Parisian challenged stash!  I'm also a little lacking in the color of coral, but found this ribbon.  The photo doesn't do it justice.  I used the color combination from this week's ColourQ challenge.  Seemed a great fit!

So stop over at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog and see what the other design team members created and leave them some "Ooo La La" blog luv!  Then, create your own French themed project and link it up with us.  We love having you play along!

For Following Challenges:

Tres Magnifique Blessings!
