This is a new design created for the brand new Unity Stamp Company {be inspired} Challenge. This design is filled with lots of their fabulous stamped images.

The front includes "Bonjour" and the inside includes the sentiment "Good Day Sunshine"....

The challenge is to use a card inspired sketch, color inspired photo and/or layout inspired sketch (or a combination).  I chose to use the card sketch and incorporate the color inspiration as well.  

This is the first time entering into a challenge of this type, for me.  It sure was a lot of fun creating with these amazing stamps, sketch and colors.

For my card, I wanted a soft typed print background with the Paris Eiffel Tower as the focal point.  I added flourishes (from a Unity grab bag), Bonjour and a lace trim.  The inside sentiment was also from the same grab bag.  I wanted just a peek of red and turquoise to keep the vintage feel of this design.  A hint of yellow gold is in the typed print, pearls and inside panel.  There is added dimension to the tower panel.

Tools used include:

From Unity Stamp Co: 
Ooh La La
Giving it all Meaning
Straight Laced
Grab bag flourish and inside sentiment
