Fussy and Fancy DT Card

We have a new challenge starting today over at Fussy and Fancy, this time our theme is "Trip Around The World", so we want to see travel themed projects.
I decided to go with a vintage Parisian easel, the easel is from Pinflair, for my crafty friend, Fiona's, birthday card.  The stamps I used are Papermania Urban stamps, used both the travel sets and the sentiment stamp is from my Portobello Rd set.  I also wanted to have a writing home feel, so I created the background with written letter and postcard stamps, used a sentiment with a postage stamp border and used book print paper behind the sentiment and for the flowers.
After stamping in black onto white card, I went in with Distress Inks in Old Paper and Antique Linen.
Round the edges for the backing panel I used Stampendous embossing enamel in Shabby White, I'm a bit in love with these powders at the moment.  On the Parisian montage topper, I went round the edges with a Versamark pen and then heat embossed with gold powder.
next, it was time to add some girly touches.  I made flowers with a Woodware punch and Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms, added some gold braid, a fabric flower, pearls, gems and a small bow.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges -
Crafty Ribbons - #28 - vintage
Little Miss Muffet - #44 - anything but square
