Less is More - French OLC!!

This week is the dreaded One Layer challenge at Less is More with a French theme.  I eventually ended up with two cards after a number of failures. My first one was using a set of stamps bought quite a long time ago and never used. I embossed a rectangular frame with a Creative Expressions die but unfortunately it partly cut through. As I had already stamped the Sacre Coeur de Montmartre and added some colour I didn't want to redo it, so held it together on the back with removable tape, with the idea of later mounting it onto another card. Then I realised there was some inky smudges so covered them with the Paris stamp and some hand drawn birds!!

The link up won't let me use the same link twice so my second card is in the next post!
