City Crafter Challenge Day ...

Hello there ... I've missed you all over the past few days ... I had a great time with my SIL in Anglesey and Wales and crammed a week into 3 days. We laughed and chatted and had a lot of girlie time together, which was so overdue.
I am anxious to see all your creations and have spent ages checking out all last weeks entries on City Crafter Challenge ... but today we have a brand new challenge set by our creator the very talented Kirsty ...
A brilliant challenge where the theme is Rome and the challenge is to make a card/project with a vintage feel ... I have never been to Rome, but it makes me think of the Colosseum, the Trevi fountain, and all the beautiful old romantic films I watched with my Mum ....



I hope my card interprets both the place and the romance ....


In case you are wondering ... I got the image from the internet and changed it to a png. file ... resized it and added the words ... then printed directly onto DP. Lots of Tim Holtz here too in the masking tape border, the key and heart die cuts which I first rubbed with gold buff, then glittered ... large flower from Prima and small flowers from Kirsty ... the rest is from my stash ...
Please pop over to the City Crafter Challenge to see the rest of the DT work together with a lovely card from our GD this week Laurie Willison .
I have sooo much catching up to do ... and look forward to seeing your entries for this challenge ... Have a lovely day

Till soon 
Ros

Ros this is stunning...all those gorgeous details and I love your image of the Colosseum. Such a lovely tribute to Rome. If you ever get the chance to go to Rome; I can recommend it. I've been there 2 years ago and I fell in love with that city. I definitely go back. There is so much beauty to see!
