I mat and layered some silver mirri-paper and then made my own background paper using stamps from the Stampin' Up! Artistic Etchings set. I originally planned to include an Eiffel Tower but this will just have to be saved for another card. The black flourish borders were cut from the Spellbinders Parisian Accents and I attached them with Cosmic Shimmer glue.
I coloured the image with Promarkers in:-
Almond and Blush (skin)
Cinnamon and Henna (hair)
Black, Cool Grey 4, Rose Pink, Blossom and Cerise (dress and boots)
Rose Pink and Blossom (umbrella).
I also coloured a length of American seam binding with the Rose Pink Promarker to match and tied the bow by hand. The flowers were from a selection from 3Birds. I used brads in the centre and then attached using super sticky tape. I didn't want the back of the brad showing on the inside of the card.
The sentiment was cut out using Spellbinders Labels Four Small. I inked the edges of the sentiment and image tags with the same ink used for the sentiment. I used the Debbi Moore foam applicator block which came with the first edition of her stamping techniques magazine.
