Ready, Steady Stamp Challenge #3-Stampin' for the Weekend #11 Days gone by

I did this card for 2 challenges. Ready, Steady, Stamp and Stampin' for the Weekend. The 5 ingredients for the Ready, Steady, Stamp Challenge was to use
Blue-I embossed the Eiffel tower (Stampabilities) with blue Zing embossing powder
Monument-the Eiffel Tower
metalI used stick pins from Memory Makers and cross charm by Fashion Accessories
cork-cork paper by The Paper Studio
Cuttlebug wax technique-I used the Argyle folder

This was a fun challenge. I admit that I went out and bought an Eiffel Tower stamp! I am sure that I will use it again! I had to do what Sue Roddis did about the wax paper. They don't package anything in wax paper anymore or sell it at Walmart! I rubbed melted wax on paper and then ran it through the Cuttlebug. The other stamps that I used are Marah Johnson-Hampton Art. I cheated a little and used paper that looks like cork!

I hope this qualifies as a vintage card for the Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge. Live Well, Travel to Paris and Believe in God! Thanks for stopping by!
