Tilda in Paris

**  Edited to add:  My card won the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. Thanks so much Ladies! ** 

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm on the run today as I have a lot to do before the weekend so my post is going to be very short.  I will try to come back later this evening to post the Copic colours I used and any other details I can't post at the moment.

Edited to add: Here's the additional details I promised to add:
  • Copic colours: (Face, Legs & Arms: E000, E00, E01, E11 & E21 ~ Eiffel Tower: R81, R83, W0, W1, W3, W5& W7 ~ Hat: Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, R0000, R81, R83 & R85 ~ Luggage: C0, C1 C3, E30, E31, E25, E55 & Y13 ~ Shoes and Socks: Co, C1, C3, C5 & C7 ~ Dress: R0000, R81, R83, R85, C1 & C3 ~ Hair: E25, E27, E30 & E55).
  • Flowers are from WIld Craft Orchids. Purse charm is from Phebe at The TownScrapper (contact via email at info@townscrapper.com). Papers are Webster's Pages and rhinestones and lace are from my stash.
I've been thinking about this layout for a long time and when I came across this gorgeous Webster's Pages DP, I knew what I was going to do.  I also finally inked up my Eiffel Tower and luggage stamps with Traveling Tilda all by Magnolia.  It is a dream of mine to one day go to Paris so this is as close as I can get for now.  How's that for living vicariously through my stamps ~ lol.


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Have a lovely day and wonderful weekend.


Hugs,
Maria
