Mojo Monday #225: Valentine-themed Thank You Card

Well, its been quite a will since I've done any card making.  For some reason this week's Mojo Monday #225 got me back in to the craft of things.  This is my first time using the Hampton Arts stamp called "Paris Moments," a stamp that I wanted for several years before I finally got it.  In hindsight, it seems so silly to have put it off for so long, but it has proven itself worth the wait with its inchies that I incorporated into this card.  This piece is for my aunt and uncle, thanking them for their love and holiday gifts.  The Eiffel Tower has significance because a few months ago we spent some vacation time with them at The Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.  I cannot wait for them to get this card; it is the best one I've made in a long time...and perhaps the funnest one as well.
