Merci/Thank You

merci1
This card was created to send to a special person who sent me a Rak.
I used French Manor Cricut cartridge for the Eiffel Tower at 4" I cut out 3 Eiffle Towers black, silver and pink, and the black one  I clicked Hide Contour to use as a shadow, I placed that down flat on card base. I cut out 2 of the word Merci  also from the cartridge under phrases and is cut out at 1.75"  I cut this out in pink and black. Applied the pink Merci flat on top of black Eiffel Tower. I then added pop up squares to the pink Eiffel Tower and added Pop up squares to the outsides of the black merci and put it over the pink Eiffel Tower. I offset the top layers because they were all cut at same size and not really shadows.
Below is a close up, you can see the embossing from the Cuttlebug and the rhinestones.

Below is the inside of the card. I put the silver Eiffel Tower and placed the inside of the pink Eiffel Tower inside the silver one for more color. And then placed pink paper on the right side so I can write a message.
