Vienna... and a challenge

7:44 PM

Soooo, I'm back! It was a real fun weekend and we squeezed in as many sights as possible... First, there was Vienna from above to get a general idea of what to expect...

...then we were headed for the Wurstelprater, a leisure park, to take a ride on the famous +100 year old ferris wheel...

... by the way, this is what shopping streets look like there! I was stunned by all the beautiful, old houses (okay, the Kohlmarkt below is indeed the pricey place to be but even H&M resides in one of those pretty city mansions!)...

... okay, I could probably go on and share tons of photos but I'll spare you more of the details and end my praise to this beautiful city with a picture of this giant castle. It was too big to capture with my standard prime lens even from afar - don't the people in the park look like little game pieces?

Can you imagine this to be only a summer residence?? Anyway, congrats in case you made it thus far ;-) I am happy to tell you that I also have a card to share today!! I didn't participated in challenges for ages and the first of the CASE Study challenges spoke right to me.

Have a fun weekend everyone!

Stamps: PTI Text Style I, Turning a New Leaf and Faux Ribbon

  3. Hallo Dana,

    danke für die schönen Bilder von Wien. Das Riesenrad ist ja wunderbar und würde mich wirklich reizen, eine Runde zu drehen.
    Deine Karte wirkt allein schon durch das wunderbare Hintergrundpapier und die Nähte, der Zwirn und die angeschnittenen Blätter des Motivs sind eine tolle Kombination.

    Ganz liebe Grüße,
