Postcard from Paris

I am so thrilled at the response for last weeks challenge over at Out of A Hat fantastic work Thank you all for joining in and those lovely comments. I do hope you can join in this month as Janet has arranged a summer surprise.
This week we are Postcards, mine is from Paris now is it a secret assignation or an under cover spy note?, I wonder. I have used a 4 x6 ins card and cover it with paper from a Crafty Individuals pack then stained it with DI Antique linen and tea dye.The edges of the card have been stamped and heat embossed with gold then stamped with a postal stamp from Kaiser craft. The tag is again DI stained and stamped with a TH and then stamped the Eiffel tower again and cut out. I finished off with lace and buttons and a secret message. I also stained the back and used the KC postcard stamp again. Do make sure you visit Florence, Janet and Chrissie have a lovely weekend whatever you do and thanks for stopping by. Hugs Sandra XXX

Your Paris postcard is fabulous. I love the stamps and how you attached the Eiffel tower tag to it. Makes me want to go!

Ooh, an air of mystery surrounds this beautiful vintage postcard. I think it is an assignation between two lovers, it is so pretty.
Mind you guess a spy could do this to throw someone off the scent!
Whatever, or whoever sent it - it is absolutely gorgeous - a really beautiful piece of artwork.
Hugs Neet xx
