City Crafter Clean & Neutral

Good morning!

I'm hosting the challenge at City Crafter this week and I've chosen simply
"Clean and Neutral"
Create a CAS card in neutral colours and here's your inspiration photo


I love the subtle colours in this photo ... and I love not having to pay the Royal Mail a fortune every time I send a card ... hence I am trying to do more CAS cards lately


I used the lovely Going to Seed stamp by Woodware and stamped it in London Fog ink by Memento


... added lots of liquid pearls in two colours ...


I over stamped with a PTI stamp from the Hand of Time set ... then added some ribbon twine and mother of pearl buttons which reflect the colour in those terracotta pots

I'm happy to tell you that our Guest Designer this week is Lisette ... aka Mrs Beez ... Lisette won challenge week 159 with her lovely creation ... Please hop over to the blog and say hello and take a look at the cards from the rest of the DT. 
If you'd like a chance to Guest Design with us ... just join in our challenge ... 
We were overwhelmed by the entries last week ... There were so many beautiful cards it makes it really hard for us to pick winners ...

Have a beautiful day and I'll be back tomorrow 

Till soon

Love that photo - it somehow reminds me of a summer cottage... maybe the 37°C here have a part in that as well. Lovely card!
