Place de la Concorde

When my hubby and I went to Paris last year (somebody pinch me that I get to say I've been to Paris), we spent about 2 hours sitting in the Place de la Concorde, freezing our butts off and waiting for sunset so Lee could get a picture of the Eiffel Tower lit up.  It was totally worth it when we got the picture:


Awesome, right?  I still can't hardly believe that Lee took that (and let's face it, I'm jealous that I didn't take it).  He didn't even edit it either other than getting rid of a few spots due to some schmutz on our camera lens.  But anyway, today's card also features the Eiffel Tower.


Had I been thinking about it, I totally woulda made the colors on the card match the photo.  Oh well, I was playing with the retired In Colors...I like the tower in Concord Crush.  This one is courtesy of the lovely ladies at Retro Sketches:


I like that sketch quite a bit.  I'd say I should file it away for future use but there are SO MANY sketches out all the time, how often will I really go back?  It is a great one, though.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful Thursday!

So pretty, and not just because it's purple. :)
