Hi everyone!!!

Oh, boy, I can't tell you how excited I am to bring you this post!!  This is my very first post as a Guest Designer!!!  The very sweet Wanda Cullen from the Colour Throwdown Team has asked me to be the GD for the month of November!!!  WOW, how could I not say YES??? 

And just look at this fantastic photo of the Eiffel Tower and the lovely colours for the week:

I've used the photo as inspiration and made a Bon Voyage card.
This is my card:

The Eiffel Tower stamp is by KaiserCraft and I've used a bg stamp by a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
The dp are from my stash.
Flower die by MFT.  Banner dies by Verve.  Border punch by American Crafts.
I computer generated the sentiment.
Added a twine bow and finished it off with black plastic dots.
Hop on over to The Colour Throwdown Blog and have a look at the lovely cards the DT has made for inspiration and join in the fun!!!
Will see you again next week!!! 
Thanks for popping in - your visits and comments are always appreciated!!!
Keep well!!
Kind regards
