Eiffel Jewelry Tower

I had purchased the Eiffel Jewelry Tower a couple months ago for my granddaughter's birthday who is a big fan of Paris.  Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it but it definitely was going to be papercrafted and wanted it to be a money tree gift.  My inspiration came from CupCake Inspirations Challenge 360, using the color combination of Pink and Gold, and using gold stars on the Sentiment (when I went to link challenge was closed) and with The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge's Inspirational Challenge using pink and gold accents.   

Started out with black cardstock...enclosed the 3 sides and made a bottom in the upper half of the tower.  Added a back panel with a flower on top and when this flower is pulled it has the money rolled inside. 

The photos below shows the card that I made for her Birthday (click here) and was the deciding factor to use a similar flower for decorating the tower. Using Cricut Design Center, for each flower there were 3 different sizes, sprayed with Gold Mist, crinkled, layered, added a glitter tape (hole punch) in the middle of each flower and placed on the tower with glue dots.   

The photos below show the detail and the Sentiment at the bottom of the tower in Gold litter, my Granddaughter's name and two Paris Models (also used on the card) standing at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower.

Wow Sue this is wonderful French flair. Love all the little details and the black trimmings sets of the colours wonderfully.
