Souvenir de France--My Version

This is my version of BBD's "Souvenir de France."

One of my dreams is to visit France someday. Right now, the closest I get is via one of Cara Black's mysteries. This piece incorporates BBD's Eiffel Tower design as well as motifs from Dover Publications Anne Orr charted design books.

From bottom left, going clockwise around:

a crown to represent past royalty; a lily; a heart for romance; a little bird; grapes on the vine; a butterfly for happiness; a stylized marguerite (daisy); decorative scroll work to evoke the magnificence of historic architecture; and "liberte" to acknowledge the transition to the republic.
