remember {good times} in Paris

Today I am entering into five challenges.

The sketch {which I spun on it's side}: Sketch Saturday.

Other challenges:

Borders {of which I have many}: Theme Thursday.

Red and black: Creative Inspirations.

Click on photos to get a better view.

Papers: October Afternoon ~ Good Cheer: Gingerbread and Falling Snow.

As I was using Christmas themed papers I was intending to make this a Christmas card, but changed my mind at the last minute and used the less obviously Christmas sides from this paper collection.

Image: Magnolia ~ Tilda in France. Coloured with Copics.

Embossed images:

~ Tim Holtz ~ Paris Film

~ Crafty Individuals ~ CI005

~ PaperArtsy ~ MN45
Other items used:
Martha Stewart ~ embossed diamond edge punch for the left vertical.
Stickles for the distressed edges around the images.
Mini black brads for decoration.
Scraps of red and cream lace.
{good times} epoxy sticker.
Ink for inking the edges.
Thank you for looking.

Edited to add: I am so excited! I won first place at Magnolia Down Under Challenges with this entry. Thank you so much girls for voting for me!
