Ooh la la!

"Parisian Beauty"
... the theme of this month's ATC swap Kimberly is hosting at artJOYstuff ...
 and here's what I came up with:

I found this image of a Moulin Rouge can-can dancer, and thought, "ooh la la...it's perfect!" 
I added in some type (that fanciful font is called "Rage", and it is the same one I used in my blog header and water-mark.  Actually, I use it all the time on LOTS of projects; definitely a favorite!). 
Her dancing outfit got an extra 3-d flounce layer of pink lace, gathered up and sewn on. 

Three ATCs for my 3 swappers:

... and all wrapped up in some tissue and pretty vintage trim:

It will be fun to see what French-inspired lovelies I get in return.
I love a good swap!
