I had so much fun making this page for the February Challenge.
I used a 6x6 paper pad from Merly Impressions called Bonjour by Kaisercraft.
You get 2 sheets of each design plus pages of elements and tags at the back, the picture doesn't really show the beauty of these pages, some are embossed and foiled.
With a sheet of natural cardstock as a base, I cut 16 squares of paper from the pad and arranged them on the page. As we had just been to Paris for a long weekend, the theme fit perfectly so I used images/words of the Eiffel Tower/Paris on the squares. The photograph was mounted onto a pink background and then random "X" stitches added with DMC thread.
I used a tag and cut out some butterflies to mount onto it.
This bottom square had a taller tower so I cut around it so it flowed onto the square above.
I cut out the bird and put him in the frame with 3d foam.
