Penny Black - Mimi in Paris



I could not get a good picture of my card, so after several tries, here it is.  I made a card very similar to this at a shoebox swap a few years back using the Eiffel Tower from a SU stamp set, but thought I could make it work for Barb's Penny Black/Whipper Snapper swap.  The stamp is from the clear set of Mimi in Paris, which I love, but I have used my Mimi's in Barb's previous swaps (she has them often, maybe even every season, because this is for her Spring swap).  So I tried to go for a more "grown up" look.

The dp is from SU Festival of Prints, with Early Espresso, Cherry Cobler and crumb cake.

Linda, this card is so pretty. I would love to travel there someday, wouldn't you?
