Inkspired by Paris!

This card came together over several days. Originally I had paper pieced this girl (digi from La La Land) for another card but changed my mind. Her beret reminded me of France, so I decided to go for a French theme.
The Eiffel Tower die was part of a Spellbinders die set I bought just recently, but I didn't buy the set for the tower specifically.
The brown DP has Paris post marks - a lucky coincidence!
I added 3 brown flowers and punched kraft butterflies.
I often struggle to decide upon a sentiment, but in this case I wanted to add the tickets with "To" and "From", as they can relate to both travel origin and destination or to names of the receiver and giver.







This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - Anything Inkspirational Goes  (inspired by Paris)
2) Inky Impressions - #95 Bingo (Flowers+Kraft+Die/Punch)
3) A Gem of a Challenge - #64 Holidays (Paris - a great weekend destination!)
4) Die Cuttin' Divas - #100 Anything Goes
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
