City Crafter #247


This week we have to say goodbye and hello at the City Crafter Challenge
Due to health issues Char had to step down from being a DT member. Char thank you so much for all that you have done and take care. I hope that you will be on the mend soon. We will miss you!

And we are happy to welcome Samra!!
Samra has a shabby, elegant style and is very very talented. 
I know that she will come up with breathtaking projects for our challenges!

Speaking of challenges; we have brand new challenge this week. 
Char picked this theme and it's:
"Lace and Roses"
Create a card or project using lace and roses

Our Guest Designer this week is Kara Lynne
On her blog you will find lots of beautiful cards in a style that I just love!

This theme has been quite a challenge for me. 
I tend to work in a CAS and fresh style lately 
and roses and lace are bit out of my comfort zone.
I managed to come up with a card that still has a CAS look :) 
And a great opportunity to ink up a stamp 
from Darkroom Door which I bought back in 2009.
A classic rose pattern but it also looks fab in bright pink, lime and red:

A small touch of lace and some soft pink ribbon.
I also added a golden sequin,
 Gold is so on trend these days; you will see more gold here too!
My card has a simple design with my roses as a focal point:

You can find more inspiration on our blog.
The winner of this week will be offered a spot as a Guest Designer
I am looking forward to see what you come up with;
 Thanks for stopping by!

Wat een lastige uitdaging en wat een mooie kaart heb je gemaakt. Knap dat het je gelukt is om met rozen en kant toch een CAS-kaartje te maken. En wat voor eentje :)

I love how you were able to keep your card CAS, but still highlight the lace and roses theme. Beautiful! Thanks for the shout out, I am enjoying being a guest designer at CCCB this week!
Kirsty Vittetoe said…
Nothing is difficult for you, you used lace and roses at its best CAS style! Bravo Stella!
Audrey Pettit said…
Oh, you did a beautiful job on this week's challenge, Stella! Elegant and classic, and still in keeping to your current CAS and clean style. I love the little window cut out with the soft rose print behind. So, so pretty!
VanessaB said…
you did beautifully!
Judith said…
Als ik aan rozen denk, dat verbind ik daar een bepaalde uitstraling aan. Jouw CAS uitwerking is werkelijk prachtig! Subtiel en veelzeggend. Mooi!
Greta said…
Oh Stella--one of my all-time favorite cards! I will have to case this--thank you for the inspiration!
