Smile (in Paris!)

Smile!  How can you not, when looking at this cheerful color combo???  Who doesn't love lime and pink?  It's like pink lemonade, on a card!  I used a pink card base, and cut lime paper and embossed it with Cuttlebug's Seeing Spots embossing folder.   I used the Martha Stewart Three dot scallop border punch at the bottom, then added a pink and white grosgrain ribbon.  I also inked the lime paper with SU's Basic Black. 
Next, I cut the Eiffel Tower from the Summer In Paris cart, and sprayed it with adhesive because it has such intricate cuts, that normal adhesive would have been difficult to use.  Lastly, I stamped "smile" in Stampin' Up's Pixie Pink, on the lime paper & mounted it on pink.  I inked the pink paper in SU's Pixie Pink, and added more pink/white grosgrain with a staple.  I put pop dots on the back to give dimension.  ~Hoppy Crafting! 

{Sidenote: The picture does NOT do justice to how bright the lime paper really is!  It's super-gorgeous!!!}
