I Love Paris

Well I should have been getting on with making some birthday cards but instead I've been fiddlefaddling about with this card.  Saw a colour challenge on The Card Concept and have tried to use their colours of Espresso(base card is stampin up espresso which looks black on here) main image is stamped on vanilla cardstock, pink bits and pieces and the rose. I haven't used any Kraft but  hope the colours on the patterned paper will count for that. The stamp is another Inkilicious I got last September and hadn't used before, the papers are from Papermania Madame Payraud and the Eiffel tower is a die cut from a friend.
