City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 406 ~ Birthday Post, Special Guest Samra

Can't believe that City Crafter is turning 8 this month!!! 8 years, oh wow, how time flies..... I started the blog when I was still living in NYC, that was long time ago....
Through the blog I met many talented ladies, or I would called them team mates....  design team members come and go because life changes and everybody has their own life and things totake care of, I do keep in touch with some of these fine ladies, this year, to help us celebrate our 8th birthday, I invited some of the past designers from the team to join in the fun.

Week 1, we are having Samra!!!! She created a beautiful card for us to CASE, hop over to City Crafter Challenge Blog to see her lovely creation!

For my card, I picked up Samra's idea of using wreath and banner, but my card is more of a envelope friendly version


I mixed and match a few stamp sets from Papertrey Ink, they are....
Quilted Elegance
Choose Joy
Ivy and Bloom
Big Hugs

No birthday celebration can go without a prize, here's what you can win if you link your card to our challenge this week!


Hop over to City Crafter Challenge Blog and join in our birthday fun!

Beautiful card! I love the mixed stamp sets and the contrast between the deep pinks, purples, and reds, against the bright green.
