Vespa Chic

Mornin' y'all!  Guess what?  I'm leaving for PARIS today!  I'm going just for the weekend with a friend, and I have an oh-so-appropriate card to share:

I pulled out the long, long-retired Paris in the Spring stamp set to make this, and I'll be entering it at Retro Rubber:

I decided to do the top row, with watercoloring being my choice for the middle block, and if you count the itsy-bitsy dots on the patterned paper as confetti then I did the center column too.  I've had Paris in the Spring since at least 2007, so 15 years--I think that counts as retro!

I also used the sketch from Fusion:

And that's all she wrote for today.  Au revoir, mes amis!
