Hi Everybody -   Okay - I know this is "after" THANKSGIVING....but really EVERY day would be a Day to give Thanks for so many blessings the Lord has provided us !
         I made this card 2 weeks ago for the NOVEMBER CHALLENGE being held by Graphic 45 Papers and tonight was the deadline to get the photos posted !  I finally got a camera in time to post my picture on their Facebook page !  So, now to see if I might possibly win something !! Woo Hoo !

     I used a 6x6 Ivory card stock and layered it with solid black cardstock at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and then used some cuts of papers from the "CURTAIN CALL" collection of papers that feature a lot of scenes and styles from Paris. I just love the Black and Ivory/tan color scheme !  So, I used my Cuttlebug "THANKS" folder and embossed a background square in ivory, and then "highlighted" the "MERCI" with black Stickles !  I added a triple layered butterfly topped off with a Graphic 45 Metal butterfly and dark red jewels on it's body. Then I crocheted a flower and hot glued it onto some black grosgrain ribbon for a bow, and added a silver-plated Eiffel tower charm. There are about 6 layers on this is heavy ! Here are some pics for you !  Happy Crafting my friends and I will be back soon !
