City Crafter #256 our Birthday Month!!


Today I have a very fun and exciting challenge for you!!!
Today is the start of a WHOLE MONTH  
to celebrate our 5th birthday here
 at the City Crafter Challenge blog
I started playing along somewhere in 2010
 and became a fan:)
CCCB has always been fun to play along.
 And I am happy that I can spread a bit of the fun
 that CCCB offers to all of us. 
Our team is close and we are easy going:) 

On to our challenge!
  Samra is our host and kicks off the special challenges for this month.
And it's all about casing the card Samra made for us: 

You can pick up the colors, the sketch, any element from Samra's card 
and make a version which is entirely yours.
The winner will win this lovely prize package, sponsored by Samra herself:

Our Guest Designer is Lula
you can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.
The winner will be able to join us as a Guest Designer.

On to my cards :
I made two cards; both for a wedding anniversary.
I picked the flowers and the design and cased both:)
The first card is made with a classic touch;
 something the happy couple just loves.

And this is my take on her card:

My second card is made with a bit more modern twist and lots of white.
I used vellum with a silver pattern. 
I took a photo from a different angle
 so you can  see the silver

Paired up with white I did not add much more:

On our blog you can find more inspiration from 
 the other team members.
I am looking forward to see what you come up with;
 thanks for stopping by!

Twee schitterende kaarten, zowel de iets meer romantische als de moderne, en wat een mooi spul dat vellum! Ze hebben alle twee hun eigen charme en zijn alle twee heel elegant, zoals altijd!

Your cards are beautiful, Stella! I love the classic designs. The smaller square card shape works so well with this design.... I think it perfectly balances the weight of the flowers in the corner. Love your color combos and papers, too. And that striped vellum is stunning!
Samra Leshinski said…
WOW!!! and another WOOOOOOOOOOOW! Absolutely stunning and so elegant cards Stella! Truthfully, I did not expect anything less from you :) You are such an amazing crafter and you have such an amazing sense of elegance and grace that is mindblowing!

Geweldig hoe jij je eigen draai hebt gegeven aan de kaart van Samra. En wat zijn ze mooi, allebei. Ook de klassieke vind ik super, terwijl ik eigenlijk toch meer van het moderne ben ;)

Awesome cards Stella, love how you did the two different takes ;)
Ira Huberts said…
Chique de friemel Stel! (ik was helemaal weg van het papier van je eerste kaart, wist niet eens meer dat ik dat naar jou had gestuurd, ha ha ha! Old age creeping up on me?) Twee geweldige stijlvolle en buitengewoon elegante kaarten, mooi! Ik ga jullie voor morgen een hele goede reis toewensen (kom net van Ros af) en heel veel plezier in the UK! Doe Ros de hartelijke groeten van me ;-) Liefs, Ira xox
