Mimi in paris

Hi here's another card, sending it in  for Simon Says Stamp Challenge Coffee and cream + DT call and Penny Black's weekly challenge -paper piecing.
This is another coffee and cream theme card I am playing with.Just got this Penny Black -30-071 mimi in Paris isn't she cute!with the little barrette .Have also used some older stamps  and 1422L Checkered Rose Frame.
I stamped Checkered Rose Frame and cut a window ,wanted to have a peek at what's Mimi is doing?I stamped another of CRF and painted with TH-distress inks,old paper,tea dye and walnut stain and added some shimmer paint too.Then cut and glue the leaves,added foam dots to the roses and Eiffel tower.Added this trim-(which looks like a gate or fence,love it !)added a ribbon at the bottom too.Used gems to create a corner deco for the card,have also added a pearl butterfly.


As for the inside of the card,I used the flower in (Mimi in Paris set)repeatedly stamping it  to create a background .Stamped and coloured a few to decorate too.Mimi and poodle was painted with the same distress inks,added a little pearl to her ribbon on her hat.The (just for you) is from 30-009 clearly in love,
( spoil yourself from )30-012 bubbly.The paper used is My mind's eye - the spider's web,one side has spiders the other has some dots. I added glossy accents to the dots.Cardstocks from DCWV.

Thanks for popping by,till my next card....
