Craft Your Favourite Memory - Trip to France

 A Place to Start has another great challenge this month.  The theme of the challenge is Craft your favourite memory. 

This is my card I made for the challenge. One of my most favourite memories is when my husband took me to France and I celebrated my 60th birthday at the Paris Flea Market. We had a wonderful time.

I decided to make a collage to remember that special day.

To make the card  I used:

Designer paper

Rubber Stamps from my stash : Sentiment , Fleur, 

Eiffel Tower, hearts, plane, number stamps

Letters from the dollar store

Wink of Stella
