Paris Nights Merci

I guess it's the fact that our Paris Nights dinner after the Syracuse Regionals had to be canceled due to a severe snow storm (see THIS post), but I was drawn to using Chic Boutique stamp set.  I actually made two — I'll post the other one another day.  For now, here's my attempts at a Paris night scene.

This card measures 5"x5" square and begins with a base in Kraft card stock.  The main image is stamped on Brushed Silver card stock to look like metal, then cut out and popped up on a background of Textured Basic Black card stock using Dimensionals.  I added the tiny rhinestones from the Eggcellent Eggs Kit to replicate stars in the sky and backed that with a piece of Whisper White card stock.  That's layered on Melon Mambo card stock.  Some Black 5/8" Satin Ribbon is wrapped around that and tied with a snip of Whisper White 5/8" Satin Ribbon.  Just cut along the selvage line of the ribbon to get the skinny little piece.  I used the Scallop Trim Punch and Whisper White card stock to give the lacy eddge.  Don't forget that you can still earn this fabulous punch FREE during Sale-A-Bration, but hurry!  This promotion is only until the end of March!  Click HERE for the details.  The sentiment is created by stamping "Merci" in Basic Black Ink on Whisper White card stock.  I added a little flower stamp from Tiny Tags stamp set stamped in Melon Mambo and another tiny rhinestone above the "i".  The metal frame is from Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, but instead of using the metal brads that come with it, I changed it up and used Black Brads from the Vintage Brads collection.  The final touch was to use a Black Stampin' Write Marker and my Spritzer Tool to spritz the background with some color.  Voila!  C'est magnifique, n'est-ce pas?
