Que Sera Sera

This week's Bloggers Challenge is texturize it. I only wish you could feel my card instead of just looking at a scan of it. I liked the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday for my card. It had lots of areas to play with. Before I talk texture, I also went with the theme challenge from Simon Says Stamp and Show which was song title. I used the song Que Sera Sera, from the '50's. Those of you who remember the song will probably have it floating in your brain all day. I know from experience. Now back to the texture. Each panel has a different texture. I'll start with the Eiffel Tower. I used Rock Candy crackle paint on it, so the panel is quite crackly. The bistro panel is layered with Golden bead gel. The Arch de Triomph panel is layered with Golden pearl mica gel. The shop panel is layered with Golden fiber paste. The sentiment panel is dry embossed using a Cuttlebug folder and the letters were highlighted with Viva Decor gold paint.
This card also works for the challenge at Three Muses this week which is Oo la la (French).

Super Fun card. I love the different stamps you used, it's like taking a little trip to Paris without leaving your home. I bet the texture is really cool. Love that song too.
