City Crafter 317

Hi there!
How's your week so far?
I've have a wonderful long weekend in Lincoln with my Aunt and I hope to catch up with you all soon.

Today my lovely friend Stella is hosting the challenge at 


The challenge is to create a project using lots of white and use an element or elements from this photo

 (photo credit)

For example: gingham or striped patterns, add a colour such as blue, grey, pink or yellow 

I wasn't too happy with my first attempt so did a second card and here it is


I went with the stripes on those tea towels and believe it or not the colour of the paper IRL is blue/grey


The pinwheel is from a wedding range at our local Home Bargain store and I added a stick and some curly ribbon (the kind you use for wrapping gifts)


Our Guest Designer this week is Sid Harpies Crafty Corner Please go visit the City Crafter Blog to see what Sid and the team have to inspire you this week... I hope you will join in our challenge

Have a beautiful day...

Beautifully created Ros...so clean and yet so elegant..I love it!! Reminds of me of linen..crisp and clean! Glad you had a good time with your Aunt, always hard to come back to the 'real world' isn't it? I am kind of 'nerved' up today as we have a nasty storm predicted for late tonight...those always scare me and it's hard to settle down!

Barbara said...

Stunning. If you told me your card was mainly white, gray and sort of pastel blue I would be wondering how that's supposed to come together nicely but wow, does it ever! Love it!

Marina said...

The pinwheel is great and your card perfectly reflects the photo.
