City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 294 ~ Butterfly, my butterfly!

My favourite uncle is my mom's youngest brother Uncle Mark......


he used to be in the navy and loves playing the guitar and sing, he would played the guitar and I sang along with him when I spent weekends at my grandma's house, a lot of my favourite songs today are great included of uncle Mark, this is one that stuck on my head, and I still remember the lyrics as we sang a lot many decades ago....


Well, that bring us to today's challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog

My card is for an owner of a limo company who works for DH. He is American but his wife is from Germany....

So beautiful Kirsty! I thought at first you had shot the images in greyscale, thanks for that last shot so I can see the elegance of the grey and white card properly. Love the bday card you made for Ros too, so pretty! Thanks for having me as your guestie today, it's such an honour! hugs :)

Linda said...

Beautiful work, Kirsty, and I love your photo! :) Gorgeous!

Stella said...

Kirsty the card in grey tones is stunning. I love a monochromatic palette and this is so elegant. Your card for Ros is another jawdropper; I love the various shades of blue and green and the splatters are the icing on the cake (or better said; card LOL!)

The picture of you & your Uncle Mark is truly a treasure, Kirsty! I adore your butterfly card--classy & modern! The card for Ros in her favorite colors is gorgeous & will be so appreciated, I know!

Both cards are fantastic. I really like the monochromatic look of your butterfly card. Also, the watercoloring of the leaves is exquisite.

2 beautiful cards...love the big butterfly and then the leafy bits on the second! Lucky recipients! ;-)

Audrey Pettit said...

Beautiful birthday card, and such a super cool butterfly card, too! I LOVE all the grey and white, and love the vellum! That polka dotty die cut background is awesome. Love it paired with those soft shimmery stripes! So graphic and so eye catching!
Love that photo of you and your uncle, too. You two have lots of happy memories to share!

Charlene said...

Nice Uncle story! Love both cards, but Ros B'Day card is my fav :-)

Mac Mable said...

Very clever use of the mono-chromatic colour scheme and I do so love it. Such a pretty and delicate card for Ros too x

Marina said...

So unexpected to use greys for your butterfly card....and it works so well - both pretty and classy.
Love the card for Ros too.

Lynette Jacobs said...

I adore the butterfly card...so delicate. You always make the most beautiful cards.

I really like the muted colors you used on your card. It lets the design take front and center. Great work Kirsty! Hugs!
