Forgive my French...

HAPPY FRIDAY friends! I love love love doing my Friday posts, first because I get to show you the newest challenge over at Raise The Bar, but mostly because it's Friday. lol! This week our theme is called:


We want to see your cards distinctively featuring a foreign country. For my card I used a tag from my daughter's shirt. ;) She pulled it off and I said, "GIMME that!" because it was so pretty! Google told me that it means "Beauty [beautiful] of the day" so of course I had to pair her with mon cheri Anya, my newest addition of the Hats Off set from TGF. The embossed line is from a Cuttlebug border - I am sooo addicted to these things! {btw, I've had the sweetest questions regarding some of the copic colors and products that I've used, I will do a post regarding this tomorrow if anyone is interested!}
I used Jen's sweet sketch from Club Anya's Saturday Sketch:

And I'm also entering her in the following challenges:
Basic Grey Challenges: Something Recycled {Kraft is BG, tag is from my daughter's shirt}
Card Ideas: Chocolate, caramel + one color {teal}
Our Creative Corner: Don't throw that away! {shirt tag}
Charisma Cardz: Birthday for a teen

Come on over to Raise The Bar and bring your passport! The DT did some amazing samples in honor of Japan, Paris, and Australia so fly over there and see it! heehee! Have a BEAUTIFUL day everyone! Thank you so much for coming by!

♥ & Aloha,
