Hello Ladies!
Today I'm playing along with City Crafter Challenge Blog .
It took me so long to enter because I am intimidated by gate cards.
And after viewing the ones made by the Design Team (check them out...they are AMAZING!!! )  can't believe I had the nerve to show you what I made!
Well, here goes.... PLEASE don't laugh...

                                                       Here is the beautiful inspiration photo

Thanks for peeking!

pattern papers from October Afternoon
cardstock from Recollections
stamps from Recollections, Hero Arts, Crafty Secrets, Unity
inks are from ColorBox, Ranger distress
Spellbinders Dies, twine from Papertrey Ink
Maya Road tag, Tim Holtz pearl drop charms
