Magnolia Down Under Challenge #109

This week over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we have a really fun challenge for you - create something inspired by a song! I've seen some of the inspiration privided by the MDUC DT and boy have they had me humming along to songs from my past...and created gorgeous scenes to delight the eyes! Pop on over to our blog and check them out!

This week we have a fabulous new regular sponsor - Stampy Land - who are offering our winner a $20 gift certificate - so brush off your favourite song lyrics and come along and play!
My scene is inspired by the song Moonlight Over Paris by Vanessa Williams - and if you click on the name of the song you can check out a youtube video of it - I was going to try and be all technical and insert it here but that is waaaayyyyy beyond my computer skills and hubby is away so I can't ask him to help! And then when I told my daughter the song I based this on all she said was "WHO??" - I feel soo old - LOL. But at least she knows Vanessa Williams as an actress from Ugly Betty even if she didn't know she could sing!

I've masked the Magnolia Moon and Eiffel Tower stamps together and popped them on a background stamped with my Stampin' Up En Francais stamp. I added Tilda and made some rolled roses with the scraps from the En Francais background. A black border using my Magnolia heart border die and I think I've created a reasonable Parisienne feel - just need the crepe makers on the corner and a bottle of French wine - BLISS!
