Guest Designer This Week At City Crafter Challenge Blog

It's such a pretty Spring.....
the trees are blossomed out and "gorgeous".....
makes you just feel good to be alive, doesn't it??
 
This week I am the guest designer at the City Crafter Challenge Blog....
I would love to have you go there and leave me some "love"
but most of all I would love for you to participate in the challenge...
the challenge this week is "Royal".....
think queens~crowns~castles~ or anything "royal"....
 
 
I made this rather large (and a bit heavy) card using bits and pieces
I picked up at Hobbylobby...the crown was a thick, thick chipboard
piece that I pulled apart and covered with a "new to me" product
called Viva Inka Gold Metallic Rub using the color silver...
a neat product you apply with a soft cloth, rub and then buff...
giving this wonderful metallic finish!!
The flowers, ribbons and gems (they came on a stem, which I snipped off)
were all found in the bridal department at Hobbylobby...
I think it turned out kind of  "pretty"  and I sure had fun creating for City Crafters!!!!
 
Why don't you give this challenge a try, who knows "you" might be the next guest designer!!!
