TSTR + City Crafter.

Both have great challenges this week. The Shabby Tea Room is GET CREATIVE. That means no patterned paper, use only basic supplies but in a creative way. Love this idea.
City Crafter is all about LOVE. Use either the word or a heart. So I combined the two ideas for my card. And this one actually turned out pretty close to how I planned it.
The image is from a CD I have. It has tons of great vintage-style clips and I thought this one worked well because it has a lot of white, which I wanted to be the main colour for my card. Then I stamped, inked and chalked the background to reflect it.



The ring that is tied in the bow is made from clay and can be removed from the card and is wearable.


And of course my daughter saw the ring so I'm sure you can guess what she spent the Snow Day yesterday making!! I think she made about 8 different rings, she even made one shaped like a slice of cake. It actually looks pretty good! She's got talent.
