Saturday playtime

I have been playing instead of doing the dreaded housey type stuff, I recently bought some new stamps by Justrite. They are older ones but were in the sale and try as I did I had to have them so gave in gracefully and bought Greetings from Paris, Bon Voyage and a background which is called Elegant Fronds.

This piece started off with me stamping the background stamp with Versamark and dusting it with Pan Pastels in Ultramarine blue Tint and Hansa Yellow Shade, I then stamped the Eiffel Tower onto the corner and an edge down the other side. I used the same ink pad (Adirondack Slate) to stamp the other images and again used the same Pans. I then went on the hunt for a backing paper and found this one in a HOTP pad.

Once I had laid out the items I decided to cut out the fence which is from a Memory Box die, once I'd laid that down I needed leaves so these are a Tattered Lace ivy die.
The butterfly is a free stamp from Craft Stamper which I've had for ages and the flowers have been sat in a box for a few years, I bought loads and stored them in a box which had disappeared so when I found it again they had to come out to play. I finished the whole thing of with some pearls but now I'm not too sure of the placement but it's tough as they are well and truly stuck.

I'm entering this into the following challenges;
