Je t'aime Francesca

This card is really out on left field for me. If you know me, I'm a happy, sun-shiney person. I laugh ALL the time and though I'm analytical, I naturally tend to be more optimistic. To me, Francesca looks like a dark Parisian street poet who has a lost soul, lol. So...I went with it. Brent actually liked it...so can't be that horrible. :)

I hope you all have a fantastic Tuesday! I'm super behind on posting pictures, but hopefully will have time soon to get things updating for my Daily December.

  1. Fab card! I completely agree that Francesca looks like a dark Parisian street poet - in fact, before I got her out to ink her up, I was convinced she was holding a paintbrush rather than cupcakes, LOL! Love the colours you've use - tres chic! Hugs, Sem x

  2. I agree. When I see these images, they do seem on the dark side. But you paired it with the bright orange and big blue flower which makes this very whimsical.

  8. I personally am not too keen on the eyes on this image, but I think you did a terrific job with the somewhat dark Parisian poet feel of the card. Brent's got good taste...after all, he picked you! *Ü* How could he go wrong?

    Have a super day, Sparkle!
