A Birthday in Paris

Doesn't everyone dream of visiting Paris.. It is the city of love and dreams.

My lucky niece has been working abroad for the past 3 years, but  for the past 12months, she has been living in Paris with the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop on her morning run.  For her birthday, I decided to include something about Paris and Australia in her card. A tutorial on Splitcoaststampers came at just the right time and I created this peekaboo card for her.
The paper is from  'Handmade' by Hot Off the Press and the Eiffel Tower stamped from WaltzingMouse Stamps - Paris Nouveau. On the inside, I stamped 'Matilda with the Koala'  by Magnolia Stamps and coloured her with copics. The stamp was a special addition in 2012 and unfortunately is no longer available..The oval and Labels 28 dies from Spellbinders, were used to create the borders around the opening in the card.  Have a go at this type of card as it is so versatile for so many occasions.

I hope you are having a creative day,
