Parlez-vous francais?........PPA25........


Chocolate chip paper, white embossing powder and a punch or two was all that I needed after seeing PPA's inspiration picture this week! I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch as a guide for my layout. The heart was stamped with swirls from Wedding Sweet and then embossed. A scallopy white ruffle was added around the heart. The secret to the ruffle is the paper crimper - thank you to Jan Tink! Chocolate and saying I love you in French sounds like a perfect combination for Valentine's Day.............
