City Crafter #271


Today it's my turn to host the new challenge at the 
City Crafter Challenge Blog
I choose the theme:
"Hemp cord and twine will be fine"
Create a card or project using hemp cord or twine; 
no ribbon or lace.

Our Guest Designer is Ilse
She was the winner of challenge 259.
You can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.

I came up with a card inspired
 by a quilt pattern. I love pinwheel patterns:

And paired up with a piece of twine:)

 I am also sponsoring this challenge with
 a little prize package for this weeks' winner!

What's in this prize package...:
A little note book to write down ideas:)
Toothpick sentiment flags
Speech bubble stickers 
Washi tape in sweet summer colors

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!

Oh, lieve Stella, dit is weer een super gave kaart! En nu heb ik toch direct wéér een setje van PTI dat op mijn wensenlijst gehopt is...
Ik hoop zo om deze week mee te kunnen doen. Misschien lukt het aanstaand weekend? Vorige week wilde ik al deelnemen (tenslotte heb ik ook zo een schattig stempel set met bosdieren).
Een leuke prijs stel je ter beschikking! Misschien moet ik je ook eens uitnodigen voor een swap, hihihi...

Hi, Stella! I wanted to come thank you for your very sweet visit…I'm so glad you enjoyed my cards! Had to see what you had up your sleeve, as well! I was able to keep up with your earlier in the summer, but it's all gotten away from me the last month! I love how the pink is such a beautiful contrast to your classic blues here…it's a lovely, vibrant and fresh color combo…and the design…your pretty prints and patterns are the perfect match for it! Such a lovely card all the way around! Love the prints and colors in the card kit on the previous post, too…you've put them together perfectly and made it look SO easy!!! So nice to visit you again, my friend!!!
