Springtime in Paris

I bet you know the feeling; you hear or see something that reminds you of a line in a song, and that song just keeps playing and playing and playing in your head?

Order of the Opus Gluei's latest challenge #95 is called "Springtime in Paris", and it instantly fuelled my brain to hear the wonderful voice of Ella Fitzgerald in my mind over and over again. The lyrics was accompanied by travel memories of walks along the Seine, where you felt like you could bump into Audrey Hepburn (in her role as Sabrina in the moving bearing that name) when you turned a corner of a street.... or maybe Coco Chanel accompanied by a model in one of her classic creations... even being served the waitress Amelié in the picturesque little café in Montmartre (yes it actually exist, the tabacco corner is however not existing in the real one).

Yes, watching movies is also a hobby of mine - and when travelling deja vu moments often occurs, only to realise it is because you have seen that place in a movie...... Oh wait I am rambling off, you just want to see the card that I was inspired to make :o)...  Here goes:

What a great take on our theme! I love the elements of high style (love the Burberry plaid, btw) and the chic elements - the texture, Audrey - that stamp is PERFECT, and the Parisian feel. TRES CHIC, mon cherie!

Thank you so much for participating with us at Opus Gluei!

Very pretty card. Love all the texture. Reminds me of a quilted Chanel purse that I drooled over for a while. Thanks so much for playing with us at OPUS GLUEI. We love seeing your wonderful creations.
