CCCB week 13 ~ English Rose

Hey all, it is week 13 at City Crafter Challenge Blog, it is my (Kirsty) turn to host again, as you all know, I love traveling and been to couple of great cities in the world. This week, we are going to LONDON
My 2 girls are great Beatles fan and also crazy over Harry Potter, so you could imagine our trip to London summer in 2008...... Abbey road, Diagon Alley (Leadenhall Market)...... my list could go on and on, well, I am going to keep it short here.
Our challenge this week is English Rose/England Rose,  inspired by a well known Elton John's piece "Goodbye England Rose" dedicated to Princess Diana, the people's princess!

A color challenge (Red, Blue and white) + Rose (optional)

This beautiful picture is a creation of Happy Harris from Happy Loves Rosie, a beautiful and fun blog filled with beautiful photographs and products sourced and handmade by Happy Harris, designed and created in England. Please pay a visit to Happy Loves Rosie, I promise you lots of eye candies, and when you are there, don't forget to visit that Vintage Caravan, lots of fun stuff in there!

Thank You Happy, for going through the old folder to search for this picture for me!

Guest Designer
We are pleased to have our challenge winner (week 5) Dana Gustafson as our Guest Designer this week. I first noticed Dana's work from Just Us Girls Challenge Blog, that was not long after I started taking part in blog challenges, like many of you, I admire Dana's beautiful creations, it could be shabby vintage, or pretty girly, or modern and refreshing, she is just a great inspiration to me, and I believe many of you would agree. We are honored to have Dada created this card for City Crafter Challenge Blog this week, for more of Dana's work, please visit her blog - Paper Daydream. Thanks Dana, for another beautiful piece!
