Guest Designer for City Crafter Challenge

Hi!

I am thrilled to be the Guest Designer this week at the City Crafter Challenge Blog.  I always enjoy their challenge, so I am honored to be their guest designer for the week. 

This week the theme is Coppelia create a project with a ballerina on it. The sponsor is Digital Paper Shop they have a wonderful collection of digital papers and images in their Etsy shop. 

The card I created uses images from our sponsor this week.  The ticket images and beautiful ballerina focal image are all from The Digital Paper Shop.
I used a white card base and added a textured soft blue patterned paper with a beautiful white border to the left portion of my card base adding the beautiful image embellishing with white vintage buttons, pearls and a handmade chipboard glittered heart also tucking in some beautiful tickets. 
A length of crochet trim was added to the top portion of the card.  The word Paris was stamped in Charcoal ink just above the focal image. 
Next a length of seam binding was added between the Eiffel Tower tickets and the blue patterned paper.  A resin flower was added to the center of the fussy bow and a sentiment.

I hope you will play with us this week for a chance to win!  

I hope you have a fantastic day! As always, I cherish your visit with me!
~Tammy~
