Step 3:  Use Copic markers to color the Paris Bonjour images, use foam applicators and the Distress Inks to add color to the Paris Map
Step 4:  Die cut the Paris Bonjour images with their matching dies, edge each with complimenting markers
Step 5:  Adhere a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of pink cardstock to the card front

Love the BG stamp. Lends itself to a
