Today we're going to Paris with Who's That Parisian Girl?. She's so stylish walking down the street in her pretty top and patterned skirt, with the Eiffel Tower in the background.

That Eiffel Tower image is a separate stamp in the set, so you can also have her walking down the street without the tower in the background. I coloured her with copic markers and paper pieced her skirt. I used the larger of the new Oval Decorative Doily Duo die-namic as a layer behind the image.

The flower is the gorgeous new Scallop Rolled Flower die-namic with a rhinestone in the center. I stamped the "merci" sentiment onto one of the new Mini Wavy Pennants and tucked it under the flower. A little pleated seam binding adds texture and the faux crochet border die-namic cut from black card stock coordinates perfectly with the decorative oval. The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Sunshine 6x6 pad.

On the inside and stamped the poodle from the set and cut out the tower with the new Eiffel Tower die-namic. I added another "merci" on a different Mini Wavy Pennants die-namic and 'flew' it from the top of the tower.

Here are the die-namics I used:

Thanks for stopping by!
