Parisian Thanks

Hello Everyone and Happy Saturday!!!
It's Sandy here, posting from a very cold Sweden, -19 degrees this morning, brrrr....
So for my monochromatic project, I chose to work with different shades of browns. Brown is one of my favorite colours of all times, I think it goes well with just about any colour and it´s also beautiful on its own. Here's my card:
In each Maja Design collection there are usually some sheets with brown tones, and here I've used papers from three different collections. The picture of the Eiffel Tower is from the Vintage Summer Basics collection, the backing paper from the Shall we have Coffee collection and the middle part is from the latest Christmas collection. You'll find images and links to the products at the end of this post.

I've distressed all edges and the sentiments (Whimsy Stamps/Magnolia) with "Walnut Stain" and "Tea Dye", my favourite distress ink colours together with "Vintage Photo". The image is the stunning "Miss Mirabelle" by Hannah Lynn.

Here are some close ups:

The 3D Eiffel Tower is one of my favourites from the many new charms that I've recently had delivered. As you can see, on this side it says "Paris", and one of the other sides it says "France".

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great weekend, and please remember to visit us again tomorrow to check out DT Member Louise's project!
