More Stampendous Colors!

I have another card for the Color Challlenge at Stampendous Impressions this week. Who can get enough of these gorgeous vintage stamps and that Fran'tage glittery goodness?

   Aren't those little pink poinsettias really cute?  I always thought of them as being red, and have  really enjoyed seeing them in various hues of pinks and reds this holiday season.
   I wanted to give the image a somewhat postage stamp look without actually punching all four sides.  Just enough to mimic the feeling of travel. 
   I added gold micro beads on the poinsettias, and sprinkled Shabby White Embossing powder on the corners and across the Eiffel Tower. I used Fran's terrific "Fran'taging" technique and heated the powder from the underside. I love the effect! 
   Next, I distressed, gold and vintage inked the edges of the layers, and added the soft, little pink ribbon and bow.  Hope you like!

I entered this as my second card for the Stampendous Color Challenge
and in the Scrap it With a Song -Holiday Christmas Carol ( "Noel' A Paris", and oh how I long to be somewhere else this holiday!)!
