Happy 40th Birthday

I was asked to make a special 40th Birthday card, the card had to include, Paris, Pink and Leopard print. What do you think did I tick all the boxes?
Using the Karen Burniston designed Accordion Rectangle die from Elizabeth Craft Designs
I cut 3 panels in black and 2 in leopard print. I used the outside part of the leopard print on page 1 and 3 and the center part on page 2. The 3 center panels were decorated with stamps, dies, flowers and gems.

The front of the card and page 2 has Flourish edges in pink, the flourish edges were made using double sided tape attached to the underneath side before die cutting.
 I die cut 2 Eiffel towers, embossed them and highlighted with white ink, glued them onto the 1st panel so you can see them from either side. The Eiffel tower on the front has added gems stones.
Here is the card all ready for postage.

The more I use this die the more I love it, you can create a wow card in the shortest amount of time. You can watch Karen's tutorial on the Accordion card on this video link.
