Using Burlap ....

... That's our challenge this week at City Crafter ... hosted for us by lovely Cheryl ...
I just know you all love to use burlap ... I've seen so many beautiful projects when visiting your blogs and I certainly love to use it ... 

I decided to go a little "Ooh La La" with this card ... making my own background paper from a mix of digital images and papers I have on my computer ... (I used the same background for some bookmarks I did Here) ...  I layered my digital creation onto some script paper by Grace Taylor


I cut a heart from some burlap... and I discovered that  rubons do stick to burlap as you can see...
The gentleman's hat is also a rubon and I glued a flower to it ... I like to think the Parisian gentleman - my real life Grand father - had been to the theatre then taken a stroll where he purchased a flower from a street seller and popped it onto his hat...


I had 2 French Grandfathers ... but sadly never knew either of them but I can imagine both of them would wear a hat like this whilst strolling along the streets of Paris


I hope you'll check out all the projects on the blog - we have the immensely talented Michelle Bala as our Guest Designer this week - if you have never visited her ... please do so ... she creates the most wonderful cards! 
It would be lovely to have you join us this week ... I'm looking forward to seeing all your creations (laptop permitting)  because whilst you are reading this I will be sailing the Fjords of Norway 

Many thanks for stopping by
Keep safe
