CCCB "Rome the eternal City" #27

Hello everyone,
How are you?

At first:  
Thank you so so much for all your lovely comments on my win at PDCC; these comments made it a very very special day!

In a few minutes I am going to do some blog hopping; I had a few busy days so I'll have some catching up to do.....

But first; one of my favorite challenges:
This weeks challenge is about one of my favorite cities in Europe; Rome!
I've been there in 2008 and this town is so so beautiful. I'll definitely go back  because there is so much to see.

Here is the gorgeous photo inspiration:

 Oh I love it!

I wanted to make a card in pale, soft colors with an "old" look.
Rome is one the most favorite cities in Europe for newlyweds to spend their honeymoon. And that made me decide to give this card also a bit of romance .......

At first one of these gorgeous street signs; you'll find them everywhere in Rome:

And the famous Trevi Fountain:

And of course the Colosseum and a bit of romance:"Roses are red":

It all came together in this card:

DP from Basic Grey, chipboard die cuts from Pipoos, a little piece of a swirl from Prima and some buttons and trim from Eline's.
I distressed the edges with Old paper from Ranger.

Have a wonderful day!

Perfectly lovely!! thank you for playing along at CCCB
Nuts, I thought I had left a note here for you with this gorgeous card, and I didn't ... I loved the wonderful honeymoon idea you used. I have never been to Rome, but I can imagine with the textures you have created here. Lovely lovely card.
