VIva La France

Whooo!!! I am FINALLY getting to post an entry in the Dottie's World challenge again! yay!
I've been working on a little project with the lovely Pixies but I will show you that another day!

The current Challenge at Dottie's World is in honour of Bastille Day this week... so - I made this card on Bastille day. Louise wrote:

"The 14th of July marks the French public holiday of Bastille Day so to join the French in their celebrations I would like us to make something with a French feel. It could be the image, it could be a french sentiment or it could just make you say Oh La La! It might even be just in the colours of the French flag (red, white and blue), it's up to you! Just have fun! Oh and don't forget to use one of the Charmed downloads!"

So here is my card:

I used a stamped image of the Eifel tower from my sister and the "Madison Oh la la" image from the Madison and Holly download package available at Charmed Cards and Crafts
Ribbon is from Spotlight and cardstock is from office works, I also used the Swiss dots embossing folder with my cuttlebug!

Merci, Au Revoir!
