Back to Black - City Crafter Challenge Blog

LOVELY NEWS:  I AM SO HAPPY!!! My creation was choosen as one of the Splotlight Artist of City Crafter Challenge Blog - Case Me if You Can - Week 104  
Hello, All!!

This week City Crafter celebrates their Second Year Anniversary!! Happy Birthday, City Crafter Challenge Blog!! Hope you keep sharing your love with us in many more years to come. Even though I am your new follower, I can see that all your DTs are fantastic and brilliant!! Love their creations sooo much.

To celebrate their 104 weeks, City Crafters are having a "Case me if you can" challenge. What is the challenge about? They want us to go through their Challenge #1 to #103, pick a project created by their talented and lovely DT and case it!

For this challenge, I will choose their Week #91 Challenge, which is Back to Black. And the DT creation I would love to case is Cheryl Jue Girl - Cheryl Nelson.

And here is my intake of this challenge. Hope you all like it =)

I cut out all the images from paper cutting template. It's not that difficult, you just need a good scissor/pen knife and patience to do it. Stick the images to the doily paper before stick is to the base card.   

  1. Paper Cutting Template from Chinese Paper Cutting by Diane Feng book which I borrowed from library a few years back.
  2. Scissor / Pen Knife
  3. Ribbon to DIY the roses
  4. Green Leaves
  5. Buttons
  6. Doily Paper
  7. The background card is a present from my lovely God Moms, Kathy!!

The Paper Cutting Template:

How to make the Ribbon roses?

I follow the instruction from here.

PS: To all lovely girls out there, my God Moms, Kathy, is going to do a giveaway. If you interested, just visit her blog and follow the procedure =)
