French birthday wishes

I made this card for my brother-in-law who has just moved to France:
I had great fun playing with the Spellbinders dies on this one - moving them around and layering them up until I was happy with the layout - using Labels Twenty :

The Paris scene was made using two Clarity Stamps - Victorian Miniatures Set

and the small Eiffel Tower

The scene was very quick and easy to do - I used a small circle to mask a "sun" and a tiny bit of Black Soot Distress Ink to ground the Tower and the Victorian Gentleman.

The sentiment is one of my favourite Penny Black stamps - it is so versatile!
I inked around the edge with a little Tea Dye Distress Ink to age it.

The background was embossed with the Creative Expressions Time embossing folder:

To embellish the card, I used the Creative Expressions Vintage Ribbon - Black  and Amber Brown:

The final touch, was to add some faux pearls around the edges using the shimmer pearlised black glue:

Thanks for looking!
