Tilda in Paris

Good morning everyone! This is a quick post because I have been busy with various doctor's appointments for myself and diabetic classes for my husband. Life gets more complicated all the time....hahahaha!!!! My niece requested a card with a Paris theme so I immediately thought of this cute Tilda from the Bon Voyage Collection, available at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store. I colored this cutie with distress inks. The papers are "Paris Vintage" from Dove of the East. The gorgeous flowers and lace were a gift from a very dear and special friend. Thank you so much sweet girl....I love, love it!!!!
Hope you all have a marvelous day. Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment! Hugs, Christina

Your niece will love it as it assembles all Paris on a tiny piece of paper (symbols, paper,fancy flowers, image all work together like a marvel) and the sweet Tilda really looks to me like a sophisticated French woman. That Eiffel tour looks amazing and so does your coloring!
