Newton's Nook Designs January Release ~ Day 2


Welcome back for the second day of Newton's Nook Designs January Release!  Today 'Newton Dreams of Paris' makes its debut, with lots of images and sentiments perfect for valentines day, anniversaries, any expression of love, scrapbooking trips to Paris or even just saying hello - how's that for versatility?!!


Just seeing the images in the package gave me the impression that little Newton in the lower right corner was looking up at the Newton kitty in the air balloon, so I went with it with this card:


(please click on the photo for a larger image).  The background is from Echo Park's 'Be Mine' stack - lots of great pinks, greys and black & white in that collection (lots of Parisian elements to coordinate with this stamp set as well!) so I did a bit of paper piecing here with both Newton's and all four air balloons.  I don't know if it shows up in the photo, but I added some glitter glue to the hearts on the card for an added touch of sparkle, cards are more festive with a little sparkle, right?
