Hi everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful week. I made this card for MMSC48 using a wonderful Alota stamp I received from my dear friend Claudia. Thank you so much Sweetie! It reminds me of my homeland and, of course, the best place to be at the end of September...Munich!
I used DCWV Once Upon a Time papers and the wonderful brads were also a gift from Claudia. They are sooooo gorgeous!! I purchased the ribbon at a local craft shop. For me "local" is a 2-hour round trip!
I hope you like my card and I thank you for visiting my blog. Hugs, Christina

  9. Christina, I'm so happy that you have a blog coz I love your creations! It's much faster than waiting for SCS to open your cards!!! I love this Hofbrauhaus maiden with her frothy beer in tow! I didn't know you were from Munich...I was in Germany about 10 years ago and loved it...went on a tour around Europe leaving from the Netherlands and driving all the way to Italy, so this card brings back many happy memories for me. Your dp is perfect with the pretty ribbon and brads and your coloring is fabulous.
    Thanks so much for joining us again this week.

  10. This is beautiful!! I just love your coloring of this sweet image and the rich regal hues!! Great take on the sketch!! Thanks for joining us at MMSC this week!!
