City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 408 ~ Birthday Post, special guest WEN!

Week three of our birthday celebration at...



We invited designers used to designed for us this month, this week, we are having WEN as our special guest! Hop over to City Crafter Challenge Blog to see what WEN have for you.

My take on WEN's card.......


I used Wen's layout for this card, in fact, I used most of the elements she had on her card, like the butterflies.....


the postage stamp....


both of the flowers....


when I first started making cards, I do a lot of shabby vintage style with lots of layers, but I have been making more clean and simple, one layer card these days, this one kind of bring back memories.....


products used on this projects are -
Patterned paper - G45
leave die - My Favorite Thing
Flower stamped on kraft paper - Uniko

We have a prize package for this week's winner too...


I have the pleasure to met WEN in person in Amsterdam 2 years ago...
we had breakfast, exchanged gifts, and walked the city all day, it was a fun day, thank you WEN!!!

What a cute picture of you 2! Love seeing your shabby chic card, Kirstie--not what I'm used to seeing you make, but from this I'd think it's your main style! So gorgeous & artistic!

Happy CCCB birthday Kirsty!! Thank you for letting me join your celebration :) I absolutely LOVE what you did with the CASE. It is so very beautiful! The butterflies really seem to have just landed there. It's amazing to see how very different your card is from mine while the elements are the same, so wonderful what you created with them! Happy and grateful to have met you in real life too, Kirsty, and your sweet daughters as well, and spend a wonderful day with the three of you! Wishing you a beautiful day, hugs xx
