I'm slightly obsessed with Paris

I am obsessed with anything to do with Paris. I own cardigans, stockings, bags, scarves and many other things that have the Eiffel tower on it. When I first saw the Eiffel Tower it had to be one of the most exciting days in my life, I took well over 100 photos of the tower. It's amazing how so many people around the world are intrigued by this amazing structure. I also own quite a few cardmaking/scrapbooking Eiffel Tower embellishments and all I needed was an excuse to use one of them on my card.

For this card I stamped the chipboard Eiffel Tower gold and let it dry, the gold looks a lot brighter in the photo to what it actually is. I printed out the little French girl and paper pieced the flower she is holding. The word Merci has been printed on my PC, I then stuck the Eiffel tower to the white cardstock and the little girl has been stuck to the card using dimensional foam. I added dimensional magic to her beret, rose and boots.
