La Vie Paris Merci

Bonjour and happy May 1st! Hope this finds you well.
I need to fit in some get well, sympathy, think of you and thank you cardmaking, so here's one I began several days ago and finished up. It features a Gecko Galz collage sheet image of the dancing girls along with a Spellbinders Labels 1 die for the stamped Merci sentiment, a Sizzix Eiffel Tower die and MFT Blueprints #25 curved and triangle slice dies on which I stamped music with Versamark and heat-embossed with white powder. 
I edge-distressed the brown Prima Amelia Rose A4 Collection paper I matted onto a pink SU card base. The tower and sentiment label were cut from the SU as well. I used a Spectrum Noir magenta pink glitter pen on the tower bars and the sentiment edge. I also added glitter to the chorus girls' sock poms and then added round poms around their headresses. 
This angle shows the shimmery glitter on the tower and the sentiment and the girls.
The back of the card has more of the brown Prima as on the front plus a side and bottom scrap strip from another pattern in the collection, and to coordinate with the front I've pressed a Palette Hybrid Venetian Green ink cube direct to paper to give it some color. The stamped and punched siggie was brushed with Picked Raspberry Distress ink. 
And final view. Merci for visiting and I hope you have a great day! XOXO

I used the mood board photo in lower righthand corner's colors

I love these dancing ladies and the Paris theme. Your card is very Francais, and beautifully done. Oh I would love to hop on a plane right now and go visit. That's cool paper you used too. Thanks for sharing this at TIOT. I hope you're doing OK and Happy MAy to you. hugs-Erika

Aah Paris! I really love this Aimeslee! The pink is perfect for the time of year - we still have lots of blossom in the UK. This month has gone by so quickly and having Covid has slowed me down a lot. Apologies for not visiting for a while! Happy May Day, hugs, Chrisx

Cute card. Love the ladies doing the can can. Great colors. Just think, years ago women would sometimes get arrested for doing that dance. Happy MaY Day and thank you for joining us at The Four Seasons challenge.Bunny designer for The Four Seasons Challenge
