Windy Tilda in Paris

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing weekend with your families. It is nice and sunny here in Canberra, but it is getting chilly... it was only 1 degree this morning when we got up..brrrrrr!

I love this Eiffel Tower stamp from Magnolia. I dont'get to use it a lot however. Inking up Windy Tilda was a good opportunity to mask them together though.  These two stamps together bring back good memories from when my Hubby and I visited Paris in the autumn of 2006. We were always getting caught in showers and one night we even had to run back to the hotel from the restaurant in the middle of a big storm, haha, we looked a bit of a sight when we entered the hotel lobby dripping wet.

I've used Magnolia papers as well for my card. The red rose paper is actually from a christmas collection but I thought it looked ok for this card.
All of the panels have been machine stitched and I hand stitched some lace to form the flower behind the red rose.  Tilda and the Eiffel Tower are coloured in Copics. I've also decorated the inside of the card.
I would like to enter these challenges with Windy Tilda:
Totally Tilda - Tilda from around the world (France :) )
Totally Gorjuss - Bling it on
The Ribbon Girl - red, blue and white
