Parisian Love

Hello Crafty Peeps!
Today I am sharing my card as the Guest Designer for the October challenge at 
I was looking for something to use for an upcoming birthday and I found this 'Paris' image which is just perfect.  It's quite a big image so I've kept it CAS and mounted it to a square Kraft card.  I grounded the image with a bit of stippling and also gave it a bit of a glow by stippling yellow around. I've framed it with some blue squiggles and added a sentiment to finish off.
Promarkers used: Burnt Orrange, Coral, Dusky Pink, Almond, Cerise, Mustard, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Burgundy, Cardinal, Ruby, Lipstick, Indigo, True Blue, Cobalt, Arctic Blue, Coole Grey 1-5, Black, Primrose, Soft Lime & Lemon.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. Besties International - October Anything Goes
  2. Love To Scrap - #86 Anything Goes
