PDCC Challenge and City Crafter's Challenge!

Today I am sharing a card that combined two challenges in one. With this color scheme from Play Date Cafe Challenge (details here) 
 
and the "Bon Voyage" theme from The City Crafter Challenge Blog # 119 (details here)
 I made this Paris-themed card with alcohol inks and Washi Tape.
You are absolutely fabulous-001
VERY colorful, huh? Well, alcohol inks will do that to your card! Thanks so much for stopping by!

The stripey washi tape really plays so well with the "Bon Voyage" theme! I have to ask -- did you use a glossy cardstock? Or did you do this on a regular cardstock? Love all the layering of stamps, Virginia!
