Bleu Blanc Rouge

I am making another appearance on the Rubber Dance blog today and I have made something quite different (for me).

From the title you might guess (correctly) that this is about the French flag. But those are also the colours of the Rubber Dance challenge this month.

Paris has a special place in my heart and with very little in the way of supplies I managed to get the page to "say" what I wanted to say.
Distress inks create a French flag background.
Marianne's Eiffel Tower die-cut is symbolic for Paris
The word Souvenir is both for Paris as a tourist destination and for the remembrance of the victims.

The word Always is illustrating famous Casablanca film quote "We'll always have Paris".
In combination these words also deliver their message.

Both stamps are from Rubber Dance, Souvenir from Travel and Always from Nostalgic Couples.

For those new to Rubber Dance stamps, if you want to try their stamps without breaking the bank check this blog post for special offers. And err.. yes I have been unable to resist so I got a big grab bag...

Thanks for coming by,

Also entering the Penny Black and more challenge.
