Stampendous Monthly Challenge - Color Challenge

It's time for a new Stampendous challenge!

The challenge this month is to use the colors pink, brown, cream or gold. Pick at least three of the colors to use on your cards or projects.  This month Stampendous is giving away a Amore Frame Perfectly Clear Set  to a random US participant. You don't have to use a Stampendous image or products to play along, but it is appreciated when you do!  You have until Thursday, January 5th at 11:59 PM EST to add your link to the linky tool, and Stampendous will draw a random winner from the US participants.  You can enter as many times as you'd like.
I love this beautiful Eiffel tower image and wanted to showcase it in a lovely coppery tones.  I started on the background and stamped the rose branch from the Rose Branch Border Perfectly Clear Set in versamark and heat embossed with the Aged Copper Embossing Enamel.  I stamped the I Love Paris two times on pink cardstock. Once embossed using the copper embossing powder and the second time stamped in brown ink.  I then cut and colored a layer of flowers to accent the image.

The sentiment is from the Amore Frame Perfectly Clear Set set and stamped in versamark and embossed using the same embossing powder. The tag is from the Timeless Tags Perfectly Clear Set.  The layers and tag were distressed using the distressing tool. they were all sponged with brown dye ink and smeared cream acrylic paint across the surface to soften the effect.
