Artistic Etchings - Anniversary

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law will be celebrating their 43rd wedding anniversary in a little over a week from now.  I knew I wanted to make a card for them using Artistic Etchings.  A few years ago they travelled to France and spoke often about their tour of the Eiffel Tower.  I wasn't sure of colours, layout or embellishments to use.  I have made a few cards using this set and any of them would suit the occasion perfectly.  One day while browsing through the posts on Stampin' Connection I saw a card that I knew would be perfect.  You can see the original by clicking HERE.  I loved the layout but I also knew that I would not be cutting out the tower.

Here is my card.  I wanted to put an anniversary sentiment on the front but thought it would get too busy so I just used the "Love" sentiment from Tiny Tags and punched it out with the Jewelry Tag Punch.  I also punched out tags in Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler.  The three tags are pinned to the bow using one of the pins in the Vintage Trinkets collection.
