The card sits in a vellum pocket on the bag. The bag is a purchased gift bag that I decorated with paper and ribbon. Here is the card by itself.
I stamped the Paris image with a Kaleidacolor ink pad and heat embossed it with UTEE. The image was then sliced into 3 equal pieces and layered. Here is a shot of the inside.
There are more details on my blog. This bag will be filled with baked goods and given to my neighbor, Del for a Thanksgiving treat. Hope you all have a great day!

As a proud Canadian, who comes from a long line of military serving family members and who's also married into the military, I pondered long and hard over this remembrance montage. I used the leaves photostamp from The Mountains plate found under Landscapes created by The Stampsmith. My card depicts Canadian soldiers, the famous poppy and the sentiment, Lest We Forget under it.
The most important element in my card, which isn't meant to fade into the background, is a snapshot of a few of the names of the 11,285 Canadian soldiers who died in France and whose remains were never found. The towering, 10-storey, white limestone Vimy Memorial Monument is located at Vimy Ridge, near Arras, France. The striking memorial features a 30-tonne limestone figure carved from a single block, a hooded figure representing Canada herself, gazing down on a single tomb overlooking the Douai plain.
With Remembrance Day coming this November 11th, I hope you will take the time that day, and every day, to remember our fallen soldiers and those who currently serve to protect our country, and the freedoms that we are so fortunate to have.

I used the same image and different ink pads on the cards. I also decided to see what this image would look like with a couple coats of UTEE. I have all the instructions on my blog if you would like more info. Here is the second card. On this card I crackled the UTEE for a more distressed look.
This color Kaleidacolor ink pad has a more Autumnal feel. So, I kept the papers in that color range. All the sentiments are from the Paris Full Sheet too. Thanks for taking a look. Hope you have enjoyed your Autumn Virtual Paris trip! Have a great day.

I hand pleated a piece of tulle. I added double sided ribbon and pearls for the embellishments. The image is stamped with dye ink on glossy white CS. I just love this image. I can hear Billie's heartfelt vocal coming right off the paper.
Have a great day and talk to you soon.

I had a lot of fun this weekend finishing this altered treasure box, featuring the exquisite, Audrey. She's my all time favourite image, so I decided to add her to this special little altered project that has now found a new home on my bedroom dresser. Here's a few more images of my project to share with you.
