Paris Emma

Hello all, I hope this finds you all well -wishing all my UK friends a lovely Bank Holiday weekend.
I had such a fab day yesterday, for my sisters birthday I bought her a ticket for the London Eye so we spent the day in London. The weather could've been better but it didn't stop us having loads of fun. We also went to the top floor of the Walkie Talkie building so had lots of lovely photo opportunities. We had lunch in a lovely pub and a walk round Borough Market (and a brownie or two!!) We didn't stop talking all day and laughed till we cried trying to take some selfie pictures!! As usual, these kind of days go all too quickly.
Well, after all that excitement its time for a quiet day of crafting so my post today is to share a card I made with a Pink Gem image called Coffee Time Emma. I bought some Dovecraft papers recently called Sweet Paris so I thought they'd match Emma perfectly.
I coloured Emma with Promarkers and added some punched and embossed hearts. I added some glossy accents to Emma's coffee and a few paper flowers and pink gems:
