How to: find a key to Paris

I've never been to Paris... but I would love to! I hope I will visit this city one day and find all this magic people are talking about. I've found some inspiration for making this card seeing my friend's photos on Facebook from her vacation in this town.
This card is a combination of three challenges:

color challenge at Play Date Cafe

case it challenge at CASE Study

and a sketch challenge at CAS - Colors and Sketches Blog

This charm means that everyone visiting Paris finds a key to the mystery of this town: it's monuments, legends, atmosphere, eating, lifestyle...
For making this card I used some sillicone stamps: from Viva Decor (Borders & Motives and Crown, Lion, Wings) and Fiskar's Wish You Were Here. I also lifted the first layer to make this card more 3D.
The letters are from Memory Box dies Large Typewriter Upper Case Font and they are colored with promarkers.
Thank you for visiting my blog!
