Funfair

This week's tag is of the Grande Roue (Ferris wheel)which was built for the 1900 Paris universal exhibition.


 It was a huge 100m in diameter and was demolished in 1937. I distressed some cream card and then added vintage French postage stamps and some script. Hope you like it! Am looking forward to seeing everyone else's.
