Parisienne Butterflies (In The Springtime)

It's been ages since I joined in the challenges at Frilly and Funky and I really wanted to enter this one which is April In Paris. I love Paris though I've only ever been in Autumn (I'm an October birthday)
I loved last weeks PaperArtsy technique which was distress inks on glossy card so I've used this again for the background. 
The stamps are a mixture of Tim Holtz and PaperArtsy and have been inked in DI's and Momento.

The edge has been cut with a TH border die, then a separate piece cut from a DI and tissue tape piece of card. 
The Eiffel Tower is a TH die, and has been embossed, inked, then overstamped with a Stampendous music stamp. This die has gone straight into my top 3 dies, I know it's going to get loads of use.
My little butterflies flying around are nail charms, and I've added a piece of lace to the bottom.
I'm entering this into the
Country View Crafts challenge which is butterflies

  7. What a stunning background... I've never been to Paris in the spring (made the error of going in high summer, and it's slightly put me off!), but this is just how I imagine it - gorgeous colours and life and beauty!

  10. Sue...your Parisian themed piece is beautiful. That background with the distress inks on glossy cardstock is stunning. Love the soft, blended colors! I also love Tim's script stamping that you've done over it. The butterfly on the edge die cut is such a pretty topping for your piece! Thanks so much for sharing this lovely piece with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
