Eiffel Tower Love Blog Hop

Welcome to the first 2015 Paper Crafters Sampler blog hop. We're starting off the year by using the Eiffel Tower template featured in the January 2015 issue, "Lovable You" of the Paper Crafters Sampler.
I started off by printing my template using the NEW "SVG" file included with each template of the month.  Wanting to give the projects a springtime feeling, I stuck with soft colors.  The cardstock color choice here was Crisp Cantaloupe.  It was stamped with the "I Like You" stamp set using a Cameo Coral dyepad. Once I stamped the flowers on the flat surface of the cardstock, I used my white signo-gel pen to highlight parts of the flower giving it that spring-like effect.
For the glitzy part, I added a little Gold and Dazzeling Diamonds Glimmer paper. The Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch gives a bit more feminine quality. To finish off the tower I created some coffee filter flowers dipped in Cameo Coral reink and wrapped some gold wasabi tape around the small flickering tea light. Take a look at the final project.

Now to view what the other design team members have come up with.  You're going to be so surprised with their creativity.
