Wishing You were Here at TioT

Time for another challenge at Try it on Tuesday and our theme this fortnight is 'Wish You Were Here'  There are lots of different way to interpret of this theme,postcards, places and the rest of the Design team have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, you won't be disappointed.
I wanted a nostalgic feel to my tag - my lady writing to her beau and reminding him of the wonderful time they spent together in Paris, and  wishing they could be there, together again.
I used  Crafty Individuals C260 as the main image, stamping 4 times, distressing and layering up, and my lady was clear embossed after colouring as I wanted her to look like a miniature painting, the frame was coloured with Aquamarine Treasure Gold.  For the background I used IndigoBlu 'All Saints' Stamp, and a CI little 'freebie' for the border.
I'm looking forward to seeing where you wish you were, so please join in and let us know.

I am entering this at:
  Card Mania - Travel/Vacation
  Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes

That's it for now,

Avril xx
