 Hello everyone,

Another week has flown by and time for a new challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON  where our lovely SHANI is hostess and has the theme FRENCHIFIED - ATG FRENCH etc, cheese, fries, snails, even chips...

My head popped with this thought in the supermarket and I was quite verbal about my idea, ha ha ha, all by myself down aisle 3.. the bread lady down aisle 4 was laughing and she called out, " I know who that is"..oh dear, I do have a reputation in that store..

Anyway, here is my project, really quite quick and simple..

This glam lady is a die cut, and I cut it out in white and added a bit of colour..

This is a freebie picture off the net and I added the right
 green to continue the grass as it only had some bushes at the bottom of the tower..

Then thought about where the lady would go..

Went into google translate for the sentiment.. 
" Just for you"
" Happy Birthday"

My lovely lady..

Matted it all up in black..

and really like the grass, that was my biggest buzz as it matched so well and that does not usually happen..

So come on over and share your french style..

Thank you so much for stopping by,
I'll see you tomorrow with another DT..

Wow, love the elegant lady and that grass, you should be very happy with that match. I never would have known it wasnʻt part of the Eiffel Tower scene if you hadnʻt mentioned it. We were definitely in the same line(=.
