TSC24: Ribbons and Lace - Blog Hop Celebration

It's time for a little voyage to Paris...well, in my dreams anyway! lol :) I created this card for the current challenge over at The Stampsmith Challenge. This month, the theme is "Ribbons and Lace". For my project, I used the Eiffel Detail stamp, along with the postmark, map and Bon Voyage sentiment stamps from the Paris sheet, all by The Stampsmith. I hope you decide to play along, you have the entire month of November to create something and link it over to us, for a chance to win some goodies from Estelle at The Stampsmith.

Last month, we celebrated the grand opening of the new Stampsmith Online Store - we're still jittering with excitement - it's so amazing!! This month we are celebrating The Stampsmith Challenge's one year anniversary and we couldn't be more excited to give you some extra chances to win... read on!!

This month's lovely theme of Ribbons and Lace was suggested by Lynne . Create a project that includes some ribbon and lace and link up your project! All projects will be entered in a random draw for your choice of a full sheet of Stampsmith rubber valued at $21!

In addition, at the end of this month, we will be entering ALL of the comments from this blog and each of the designers' blogs into a hat for an additional full sheet of Stampsmith rubber - also valued at $21!!! The more love you leave, the more chances you'll have to win!!

This is my full, framed project. My youngest daughter is absolutely crazy over anything and everything to do with Paris, especially the Eiffel Tower, so this project is for her.
Here's a close up of the ribbon and lace in keeping with the theme.
If you arrived here from Lynne Moncrieff's blog, Adorn then you are in the right place! From here, Debbie Reid's blog, Scraps from a Broad invites you to visit! Below is a complete list of the blogs in this hop in case you've missed any! Be sure to leave a comment at each stop for more chances to win! Have fun hopping and best of luck in the draw!!

Nice! I love how you went a different direction with the theme and have a world theme, rather than the typical Victorian lace idea. Great use of the challenge.

Beautiful collage, with such a soft shabby vintage feel and the frame sets it of a treat. XX
