Happy Birthday Parisian style and Retro Sketches #14

A young cousin of mine has a birthday coming up.  He thinks it's just so cool that I live in France, so I wanted to make him something with a French theme, but not too fussy or girlish. This weeks Retro Sketches #14 design seemed aptly suited to the occasion.

The map paper is a left-over from an old Paris guide book that I've taken apart and reworked into a travel journal. I love old map paper. It has such a soft pastel finish to it.


I don't live anywhere near Paris, but when you think of France you think of the Eiffel Tower so I just had to include one of those.


Material

Upcycled divider paper, vintage map, Florilèges Design sentiment, Kaisercraft die cut Eiffel Tower, Scrap pour Tous hors-série paper, G. Lalo card stock
