Postcard to Paris



Today I am entering Tomic's #2 Challenge-Color Combo White + Pink + Brown.  I have been wanting to use this Parisian background paper for some time now and what better way then my Postcard to Paris.  I received this stamped image of Tilda in an image exchange and thought her perfect for this card.  I colored her with my trusy Copic markers and set her aside.  The postcard paper was from a pack of paper I bought at PTI (papertreyinc).  I oulined it with Star Dust stickles to "glamourize" it.  The flower was die cut using flower dies also from PTI, edged with distresser ink (along with my image), attached together with a brad then spritzed with water to make the paper more pliable.  I squished it and squished it until the flower formed to my visions.  I added some pearls and lace trim by the flower and hung my Eifel Tower charm so it just dangled down the edge.  I thought the lace trim at the bottom finished my card off perfectly.  I hope you enjoy my challenge entry!  Love, Elle
