Parisienne chic

Good morning :)
I'm following up from my London posting by hopping across the English Channel to the very stylish city of Paris!  This is another digi from my latest City stamp set available now at CYDI LilyPink Designs .  I kept it simple and feminine by stamping a background using lilac and grey inks and adding an inked and punched card embellishment.  The digi was lightly coloured with Copics and I dripped a small amount of the Colourless Blender over it to add a worn and distressed feel.




I don't know why it is but images of Paris always seem to have a shabby chic feel to them and with that in mind, I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
http://corrosivechallengesbyjanet.blogspot.com/ - Not too shabby
http://ooh-la-la-creationschallenges.blogspot.com/ - Make it Girly (106)
http://incywincydesigns.blogspot.com/ - Vintage
http://craftycardmakers.blogspot.com/ - Distress it (69)

Thanks for popping today :)

I love Eiffel Tower images and pairing it with the postmarks and postage stamp images really brings this card all together for a wonderful French flair. :-)
