City Crafter #344

Hello and good morning!

It's my turn to host this
weeks' challenge at the City Crafter.
I picked the theme:

"Blue Monday"

Create a project to cheer someone up.
For example: "Thinking of you"or say "hi"


Throughout January we are having Danielle 
as our Special Guest Designer.
You can see more of her creations on her blog.

I made a card with a bit of a masculine touch.
No floral or "feminine" elements.
I used some papers of a paper pad which
 Ros and I shared while I was visiting
her last year.

I added a bit of contrast using red cardstock 
 for the sentiment. And a bit twine; also with red.
This is my card:

You can find more inspiration
from the other team members and
Danielle on our blog.
The winner will be offered 
a spot as our Guest Designer.

Thanks for stopping by 
enjoy your day!

Great masculine card, Stella. Navy blue and red has always been one of my favorite color combinations. And that little wood veneer star adds the perfect finishing touch. Awesome card; love it!! Bev
