Crossover Birthday Card with tags.

 Hi Everyone, friends..followers & visitors..

Beautiful day here after a chilly misty start..

UPDATE have now replaced the "Y" right way...LOL

This card is for my Grandson, for his girlfriend, she is finishing her course work working  in France 4 months then Barcelona  to finish her exams..she was at college in Spain for 6 months.. that was`nt so bad as he could hop on a plane to see her, not so easy now as there is no direct airport where she is..

Anyway he asked for a card with a Paris them, he is surprising her by taking her there for her birthday this month.. she is really lonely this time as there is no English in the work place and they have there own friends..really feel for her..after all the years of work.. she will be a translator in Spanish and French...

The paper I have used is free download from the generous Astrid..
I took it into MCS altered the size to what I needed added birthday text.. I also used justrite "greetings From Paris" stamps with Versafine onyx black ink ...

he asked for no insert as he wants to write himself.. so I have made three tags..added photos of them together  on two, there is plenty of space for him to put his own messages.. you can also see I have made this a card that opens at the back..for the insert..

Guess who had no "Eiffel Tower Die" had to go shopping quick...Marianne one.

also used Memory box/Poppystamp dies.. Cheery Lynne..Spellbinder..

Finished card..hope he like`s it...
