Parisian Dreams

This is a card I made before going on holiday using Parisian Tilda which I have coloured with Distress inks. Spiced Marmalade, Walnut Stain & Sage Green.
I Googled a free image of the Eiffel Tower & again coloured with Distress Inks.
The papers I am afraid were in my stash, so no idea whose they are, but lending themselves perfectly to the card.
I added faux stitching to the edges of the papers.
Eiffel Tower charm added onto ribbon which I have attached using Eyelets. Flower from stash & sentiment is an old QVC purchase.
Entered into the following challenges
Sentimental Sundays Anything Goes  with a  sentiment
Paper Sundaes Stitching
Craft Your Passion Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Stitching

God it has taken me longer to add the challenges than it did to make the card. The internet is so slow here in Cyprus & doesnt help that Blogger seems to have issues too.!
