City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #359 ~ CASE 4

Hello my friends, we just got home from our NYC-Paris trip, I enjoy traveling but at the same time, I long to be home, especially missing Papi.
Here's a few picture I took in NYC....


On Thursday (April 13), I went to Brooklyn Botanic Garden while DH is at work, I can't believe this is the first time I go there for the fact that I actually lived in NYC for 8 years.


It is Springtime in New York, the cherry blossom though not in full bloom but it is pretty close


One of the item on my bucket list is to go to Japan during April to see cherry blossom, I guess Brooklyn Botanic Garden is pretty good for now!



If you are following City Crafter Challenge Blog, you probably know that we are celebrating our 7th Birthday in April, this week is our final week of CASE ME IF YOU CAN.

Here is a card from Marina for you to CASE


and here is my take....



I hope you could play along with us, we have a prize package sponsored by Marina this week.


Come join in the fun at....

Glad you're home safe & sound, Kirsty! Love the pictures from NYC! Our neighbor's cherry blossoms are so pretty, but lots have been getting blown off by our winds. What a great case of Marina's card--love how you used Rosie Posie!

How pretty these flowers are - both in your lovely card and the blossom on the trees.

Welcome home, Kirsty! Hope you had a fabulous trip, although I know what you mean about the joys of coming home, too! I'm sure it was wonderful to see your sweet baby Papi again! LOVE the photos of the botanical garden! How magnificent. My parents just returned from a trip to Japan to see the cherry blossoms, although I believe they were a bit early for the peak. But what a dream.
LOVE your card! Gorgeous flowers, and I love how they cascade off the side, like the cake in the inspiration project! Fabulous colors. Love the sequins and enamel accent dots, too!
