Happy Birthday City Crafter!!

Hello and good morning!!

City Crafter Challenge is celebrating this month ... We have just turned 5 years old!!


We have a month long party planned so for the next 4 weeks each of the Designers will create a card 
The challenge is to CASe the card
You can pick up on the colours, the sketch or any element and make a version that is entirely yours
The designers have each sponsored a prize for the winner of each of the 4 challenges

Today we are kicking off with a card designed by Samra


...and this is fabulous the prize Samra is offering to the winner


I love Samra's shabby chic card and wanted to see if I could put a modern twist on the design - Here's what I came up with


I kept the sketch the same but used a host of butterflies instead of flowers ... They were cut from a piece of CS that I had sprayed first with various inks and paints


You can't really see from the photos but I used an iridescent paint for the butterfly bodies and together with the touches of gold in the wings they are quite shiny


We also have an amazing Guest Designer joining us this week ... Lula ... click on the link to go visit her blog and say "Hi" You will be enthralled with her lovely creations!

Don't forget to hop on over to the City Crafter Blog to check out all this week's creations and come join the party!!

Have a wonderful day!
