I love Paris in the springtime ...

... well, I love Paris anytime really, but it's been years now since my last visit.

Inspired by challenge 16 gave this inspiration photo:

The picture made me think of enjoying a break in Paris. This is also good for Our creative corner: spring break vacation destination.

I had some GCD Paris nights paper left over from some previous cards I made - another opportunity to join in the snippets playground fun at Pixie's crafty snippets 13 - and I used a pack of gold and black 3D stickers to accent the background. The golden Eiffel tower is actually stuck over the one printed on the paper.

This is also for:
