CCCB # 51 'Cheer Up"

Hello everyone!

How are you? I hope the weather in your part of the world is just as gorgeous as it is here in Holland...
It has been a few days since I've been here. After a very busy week and weekend I finally had a chance to squeeze in some time for a card. 
I made this card for this weeks' challenge at the City Crafter Challenge Blog. This week you have to include something digital and a get well / thinking of you theme.
I added a free download from the Graphics Fairy and you can found this weeks' theme in my sentiment. It's quite simple; I just added the sentiment "Girl Friend" for a special friend who really needed a card to brighten her day a bit.... ( I hope that's good enough for the challenge)

I used some paper from Prima (Botanical) and the polka dotted paper is from Action.
The green flower and the stud on my bow are also from Prima.
Roses from Mulberry and lace from my stash.
The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets stamped with Bamboo Leaves from Memento

A close up:

Green seambinding from Lina Beas and the image from "The Graphics Fairy"
Here is my card:

I'm off for some blog visits :) enjoy your Sunday!
Till soon,

A really beautiful card, Stella. Such lovely papers and gorgeous colours. I'm sure your friend will be cheered up by it.

Yes, we have had the good weather too, but unfortunately they say it isn't going to last for much longer! Hope you have a good week!

Ik zit nu heerlijk buiten in de tuin te bloggen, heb nog heel wat in te halen na een gezellig lang weekend weg met manlief, zwager en schoonzus, maar hier ben ik dan! Hoop dat jij er ook een paar gezellige dagen op hebt zitten, maar dat zal ongetwijfeld! Ach wat heb je er weer wat liefs van gemaakt Stella! En wat heerlijk om te lezen dat jij ook 'van de Action bent', ha ha ha! Ik loop er ook altijd even graag naar binnen met de woorden 'je weet maar nooit' ;-) Liefs, Ira xxx

Hoi Stella,

Wauw! Wat een mooie kaart is dit! Super mooie vintage stijl! Dat vind ik toch lastig om te maken altijd, maar altijd wel heel mooi om te zien! Tja, ik kan je alleen maar aanraden om bij Papertrey te bestellen, want zoals je ziet en leest, ben ik er helemaal weg van! Maar het is helaas wel duur, het verzenden, maar als je pech hebt, ook de kosten van douane en belasting... Mocht je iemand kennen in Amerika, dan kun je misschien via die persoon bestellen? Boven de 60$ is verzenden binnen de US gratis en dan kunnen zij het kleiner verpakken en goedkoper naar jou sturen. Heb ik ook een paar keer laten doen door een blogvriendinnetje en je hebt ook grotere kans door de douane met rust gelaten te worden, omdat het een kleinere prive-zending lijkt. Wie weet?! In elk geval weer een erg leuke kaart bij jou!
Groetjes en fijne dag!
Welcome said…

Inky hugs, Pauline
