CCCB...Happy 4th Birthday!!!

Hello Again!

One of my favorite challenges is celebrating their 4th birthday, which is City Crafter!  Wow!  How times flies when you're having fun!:-)  It's hard to believe the challenge is four years old.  They are having a great celebration with many prizes!  For the challenge you are to case one of the projects and guess the designer.  I do believe that Kirsty designed the beautiful card as seen above!  I tried to incorporate many of the same items such as birds, gingham, flowers, ribbon, and postal stamp.  And, here is my card...

I started with a cream card base and layered with vintage paper and doily.  I stamped the postal sentiment and stitched around the card.  Light pink tulle placed behind the doily.  The birds were stamped and die cut.  Roses and pearls added surrounding the birds.  Ribbon, button and twine to finish off the card. 

Ok, friends, that's all for now!  Hope you are having a wonderful day!  Thank you for dropping by!
