Eiffel in love in Paris

This week at Paper Playtime, we’d like you to use a pun. I had quite a few puns I was considering, but in the end I settled for ‘Eiffel in love in Paris’. I decided to use this super cute pre-coloured Sylvia Zet image which is available at the Hobby House. As it is a predominately purple and orange image I made the sentiment in these colours. The papers are plain card stock in white and purple, a purple star patterned paper I’ve had since who-knows-when and an orange plaid patterned paper from a First Edition Paper pad.

I have also used spellbinder dies as well as two Martha Stewart punchers to make the leaves and the butterfly. The butterfly punch was purchased only a few days beforehand and I have already made tons of random butterflies just because they are so pretty, heh. The purple ribbon, bow and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the white ribbon might be a papermania one. I will look and update the post when I’m back home from my holiday. It turns out it is not by papermania; it only has the word ‘Celebrate’ on the front. I do, however, recall that I bought it in Range in the UK.
