An Evening in Paris

 TSC25: Shimmer, Sparkle & Shine  is the challenge at  The Stampsmith Challenge  right now.  I chose to create an evening  in Paris. Perhaps you  were there and experienced the fireworks above the Eiffel Tower.  The tower is so glimmery when it is illuminated in the evening.

Here are two  angles of the card. I used the Paris Art Rubber stamps from The Stampsmith. The rubber stamps can be found at   The Stampsmith on-line store here. 
I colored the sky with distress ink, outlined the lights on the tower with a white gel pen,  embossed a few fireworks and added colored prills and mica to the fireworks.  I used  the following Spellbinders Dies - 2011 Snowflake Pendant, Ovals, Rectangles and Fleur de Lis Rectangles. The background paper started out as a piece of white copy paper which I copied the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne then cut it to the size I wanted. I then crunched the paper then straighten it out and applied distress inks. I stamped some fireworks with distress ink and embossed a few with gold embossing powder.  I  applied Glossy Perfect Paper Adhesive and Crystal Effects (US Art Quest) for the shimmer.  I blinged up my snowflake to look like a swirling firework and added some ribbon.  Thanks for stopping by.
