I Love Paris ...

Good morning ...
My, it's cold here ... Spring seems to dip her toes in and then run off again!  But for the daffodils and primroses I could be forgiven for thinking that Spring was even on the horizon ...
At least I can create my own Spring with paper and card ... 

I am hosting the new challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog this week and I am challenging you to come up with a card or project 
"Inspired by a Song"and tell us what your song is 
If you are like me a song often pops into your head when creating ... you know like "Tie a yellow ribbon" when using yellow ribbon ... Lionel Richie's "Hello" when using my PTI die ... and so on ... Well it's easy to guess what I was humming when I made this ...

I Love Paris (in the Springtime)


Note I actually used blue card stock instead of my usual white (Gasp!)
The background paper is a digital I've had for the longest time and I added the words "I Love" to the text that is already on the paper


Flowers and butterflies in cheerful Spring colours ...


I am really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with ... and our winner will get a Guest Design spot here with us at City Crafter ... Just link up your creation and don't forget to tell us what song inspired you ...

I'm off to see what the rest of the lovely team has created this week ...

Have a beautiful day 

~ Ros ~

Hello dear Ros, that's so funny, I was just about to visit your blog and then you visited mine :)
Your card is gorgeous, and I do love Paris too! At the moment we're listening the beautiful song you choose.... I'm dreaming of Paris now :)

hugs, Wendy

Wendy said...

ps: I had so much fun with this challenge Ros. Both the creating part as the listening to the songs everyone choose while looking at the beautiful creations.

hugs

So pretty, Ros! Really love that cluster of flowers, and your gingham bow is the perfect finishing touch!

Barbara said...

Well, we are in need of springtime feelings as well (that is: everybody except me): we've had more than 24 hours of continuous snowfall, it's chaos out on the roads... and I love it. Your card is gorgeous and I think your use of BLUE cardstock turned out exceptionally well ;-) Hope to see more of it!

Linda B said...

I know what you mean about spring, Ros. It was snowing again today... SNOWING!!! Gasp... it's not suppose to snow on my birthday!!!! It is March, right?
I love your challenge for the week... and this card. The blue cardstock is stunning as are those flowers... beautiful green gingham ribbon, too!!!
Hugs!
