Week 7 ~ Button and Bow

Welcome to another challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog.  It's June here and this week our challenge is BUTTON and BOW.  Also, all our DT and GD will be using digital stamp for our sample this week. This is my first experience with digital stamps, so if you've never done one thats o.k. it's really easy because the subject is your choice, the colors are your choice  and all the embellishments are your choice. Good luck and have fun.

Create a card/project using Button and Bow is all you need

Guest Designer
We are very happy to have an opportunity this week to introduce you to a talented crafter who has come to our attention recently. Linda Coughlin from the Funkie Junkie blog has been playing in our City Crafter Challenges and was the winner of the Week 2 Easel Card Challenge. Linda has been a serious card-maker for the past two years and serves on a number of design teams. Her favorite style is vintage/shabby chic. Linda really enjoys making collage style cards and says she loves taking something new and making it looks old. Here is her take on this week's challenge using our sponsor Digi Doodle Shop's Perfume from Paris Set.

She has been an amazing team member and will be missed so much by all of us on the DT. Thank you so much for all the fantastic work that you gave us Heather. We wish you all the very best for the future, and when things settled down for you a bit we hope to see you visiting us and joining in the challenges from time to time.

As always, our DT have some wonderful samples for you, this week we are all using digital stamp sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop. All of these images are available at www.digidoodleshop.com
