A Postcard from Paris - February Counterfiet Kit

I'm playing again with the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. The inspiration kit for this month is 'Weekend in Paris' by Noel Mignon:
It's a very rich and luxurious kit, jam packed with lots of beautiful pp and embellishments, all in soft colors.
I have ton of photos from our journey to Paris, so the theme was perfect for me. I named my kit 'A Postcard from Paris'.
At first, I thought it's going to be a tough mission for me to counterfeit this kit, but let me take you through my process.
The first thing I was attracted to was the black/white bows, so I made 1 large bow and 2 small ones:
Then I picked the cardstocks, in matching colors to the inspiration kit.
The next stage was going through my endless pp, and I just couldn't stop adding more and more beautiful papers.
I just got my DT package from Altair Art, and it is full of beautiful papers! So naturally I've put some to these papers to my kit. I added 7 Dots Studio papers, Prima papers, Lemoncraft papers, and Blue Fern Studios papers. 
So this is how the papers in my kit look:
Now it was the alphas turn, but I couldn't resist adding some 6x6 pp too, once again from Altair Art and 7 Dots Studio:
Then came the fun part - gathering the embellishments!
Lace, flowers, flair buttons, crystals, die cuts, Robin's Nest dew drops, wood embellishments, pom pom trims, crochet flowers, baker's twine, washi tapes, DIY enamel dots, resin embellishments, chipboards, rub-ons, stickers, and gold sequins. I didn't have any puffy stickers, so I counterfieted them by die cutting some foam with words dies.
And some close-ups:

Since my table was still ful with beautiful papers and embellishments, and I just couldn't put them back, I've made an Add-ons kit:

I'm not sure I will actually use all of the content of my kit this month, but I had so much fun gathering it and I will sure try to use up as much as possible.
I'm already working on a project, using this kit, so please stay tuned...
Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much!

Your counterfeit is utterly captivating & lovely! And with a trip to Paris waiting to be scrapped I vote for you to lock yourself away until this kit is all used up :D
