'Paris' - Julia Spiri Challenge #14

Hiya, a new challenge has started over at Julia Spiri. Our theme as usual is 'Anything Goes' or with the theme 'Paris'.  For this I have used the sweet image Vintage French Lady, isn't she adorable! For more Julia Spiri images, challenge details etc, these can be found by following the links at the bottom of the page!! So here is my finished project....
My Project
Products Used
Julia Spiri - Vintage French Lady image
ProMarkers - Sandstone, Tan, Caramel, Buttercup, Eggnog, Sunkissed Pink, Antique Pink, Marsh Green and Cool Grey 5
Copic Ciao - Skin White and Pinkish White
Glitter Gel Pen - Gold and Red
Spellbinders - Decorative Labels 8 die
Marianne Designs - Eiffel Tower die 
  Britannia - Rose Leaf die
Trimcraft - 'Sweet Paris' backing papers and Gems
Anna Griffin - Velvet Ribbons
Papermania - Organza Bow
Pinflair - Antique Silver and Brass Buff-it
Cream 8x8 Scalloped card blank
Green/Gold card, Gold embossed card, Peel-offs and Flowers are from my stash

First of all, using the green/gold card,  I cut out the eiffel tower, leaves and backing topper. With the latter I edged with the two colours of Pinflair Buff-it, to give it a distressed look. I layered together some more of the green/gold card and the 'Sweet Paris' papers onto the card blank, adding the matching colour velvet ribbon trim. After printing and colouring the imge, I carefully cut it out and placed this on the die-cut topper, then both onto the card. To finish off I added the eiffel tower, after edging with the Buff-it too, then the flowers, leaves, gems, corner peel-offs and organza bow.
