I have the honor

Well hello.....

How are you? Yes  I've been missing you....and I hope you all are doing well...
It has been more than 2 weeks since I've been here and to be honest; September went by in the blink of an eye. I caught a cold and after that a stomach flu. Nothing too serious but enough to keep my energy level below zero...Besides that we had the pleasure of a few dinner invitations and a few birthday parties. Also counting some cleaning and laundry and before you know it there are not enough hours in a day :)

A while ago I had the pleasure of receiving an email from Kirsty; the owner of the City Crafter Challenge Blog . She asked me if I would like to join them as a Guest Designer.
Of course I said yes; CCCB has been the first challenge I submitted and I play along whenever I can.
It's such a honor and I am very grateful that she asked me!
Over to the challenge!

This week it is a color challenge based on black and cream!

And you can win a fabulous prize; our sponsor is Pixie Dust Paperie !!





I made a card with a few of my favorite things...
Cream cardstock, black ink and a floral background stamp.
Paired up with a tiny tag, a sentiment and a silver pearl...




A flower made with one of my flower dies, a little doily and of course...a pearl!




Pop pom trim and a dressfrom die




A bit of distress ink arund the edges and there it is:




I hope you all can play along and join the fun! And get inspired by the Kirsty and the other amazingly talented ladies of the DT; 


Linda  


Have a lovely day/ evening;
Till soon!
Stella

Hey Stella! I've missed you, too! I was so excited to see that you were the guest designer over at CCCB this week. :) Sorry to hear you've been under the weather lately.
Your card is fabulous! I so love the elegant black and white combo, and that background stamping is gorgeous. Love the trim and love the layered flower. Fabulous use of the dress form die cut, too.

It's great to see you back, Stella! And congratulations on being a Guest Designer at CCCB. What a true honor. I really like Kirsty and her team. They are super-nice ladies, with mega-talent...which is why you fit in perfectly with them!

That is a gorgeous fabric / floral stamp you used, and it goes so well with the 'seamstress' theme (hey, this would be a great card for a couple of your sisters!).
