Pixels and Paper - February reveal

This is the gorgeous inspiration picture at Pixels and Paper this month.  La Tour Eiffel est magnifique, ne est ce pas? Je veux aller à Paris. Peut-être un jour...

For this challenge I shifted the focus geographically closer to home... Sydney Tower, which I visited in August last year. I drew inspiration from the letter paper in the photograph and also added some splashes of gold:

As a nod to the City of Love, I added some silver transparency hearts:

I hand-cut my title from a vintage book page.  The checked background cardboard is recycled product packaging (can't remember what it was from, but I liked it, so I hoarded it... as you do!)

I'm submitting my layout to the January Cardboard Central challenge at LESSology.  I recycled some cardboard from a shoebox by cutting out the cityscape motif; I sprayed it with gold paint:

{PS:  The shoebox will feature in another layout... sometime really soon!}
