City Crafter Challenge Blog 5th Birthday Celebration

Hello everyone,

I am thrilled to announce that City Crafter Challenge Blog is celebrating it's 5th birthday and that I have the honor of hosting the first challenge this birthday month!
This month each team member that is hosting their week's challenge is to create a card that the rest of the team and participants of the challenge would case...
Here is my creation that will be used as an inspiration point for this week's challenge:


You can pick colors, design or any element of this card to CASE and make it your own...let's have some fun!!!


I created a cluster with handmade flowers all treated with gesso and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and added shabby bow, butterfly and a rose medallion.


I used Spellbinders fancy tag dies cuts for the base of my banner sentiment which was printed on a piece of vellum...


You can see the distressed layers of the base cardstock in purple and beige and tulle peeking behind the beige layer...


One more view at the finished card...

Now to add a cherry on top of this celebration month, each host will be sponsoring the challenge with little prize package!!
Here is what the winner of this week's challenge will get:


This is a good starter for fun spring and summer cards with cardstock in fun colors and patters, set of ribbons and different embellishments.

This week we are thrilled to have Lula as our Guest Designer. Please stop by her fantastic blog to check out her breathtaking work...

And of course stop by my teammies' blogs to check out their fantastic creations

I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...
