City Crafter Challenge #78 - A Boo-tiful Color Challenge

Hi All! I'm so excited to be this week's hostess for City Crafter Challenge Blog! The theme this week is "A Boo-tiful Color Challenge". Your challenge is to PRIMARILY use the colors BLACK and CREAM on your project. I love Halloween and this color challenge is Halloween inspired, but your projects DO NOT have to be Halloween projects. Please REMEMBER that in order to be in the running for our prize, though, that we want to see projects that the MAJORITY of your project is using the colors BLACK and CREAM. You may use other colors, but the focus should be on BLACK and CREAM. We can't wait to see your BOO-TIFUL projects!

Week 78 ~ A Boo-tiful Color Challenge

Guest Designer

Get to know Stella.....

Hi everyone! My name is Stella Schenkel and I live with my husband in the northern part of the Netherlands (also called Holland) in Europe. I am a (very proud) mom of 2 sons of 24 and 20 years and working at the font office of an insurance company.
I started card making in the end of 2009 and am hooked ever since. I stated blogging in 2010 and CCCB has been the first challenges I joined. I play along most of the time since then (oh my is this English???). CCCB brought and is still bringing me so much fun since I joined them. A wonderful source of inspiration; an extremely talented DT who also are a group of wonderful women.
It was a lovely surprise when Kirsty asked me to be a GD and I am very very honored. I hope you all can play along this week!
