CCCB#5 J'aime Paris Challenge...I love {vintage} Paris!

Tres chic!  Isn't she lovely?  This little lady is helping me channel my vintage Paris today with the girls over at the City Crafters Challenge Blog.  This is a brand new play place for me and this week, it's all about Paris, baby!  Check out their inspo picture...
Amazing piece of ephemera, right?  Here's what I came up with with a little help from the Graphics Fairy.

The vintage label and photo are from the Graphics Fairy blog and the fab bird paper is actually vintage wedding gift wrap my mom just gave to me along with tons of other paper wrap gems.  The damask DP is a new piece from MME from the Posh line.
Aren't they sweet?  I added some stamps from SU! too.
The lacey edging is actually a thrifted doily I cut apart.  The silver fabric glitter worked wonders on the loose ends of the doily while adding a bit of glittery bling to the project.  The folded edge around the lady's portrait is actually a white cupcake pan liner! 

This was a really fun challenge.  I had a blast getting all vintage-y and being Parisian for the day.  Merci, City Crafter Challengers!  Thanks for stopping by everyone!

Man, I wish I could write/speak/understand the beautiful language of Pari! I would be dripping with adjectives of beauty and forgotten romance... Exclamations of your brilliance and these, carefully pieced and artistically composed images... BUT that, my friend, would only be the beginning... Next would be a large statue, multi-storied, strong and feminine....

Oh, forget it! You're just too awesome to describe! THIS card is hot, hot, hot, baby! WTG!

A cupcake paper !!! How completely clever. (plus it made me laugh when you "confessed" - I never would have guessed it, would have copied it painfully by crimping all those little creases by hand, lol lol) Wonderful card.
