Seems like I have rediscovered my love for card challenges :) So, this is just a quick post to participate in A Passion for Papertrey's Long & Tall challenge.
Finished card size: 9,5 x 19 cm / 3,75 x 7,5 in
I know it's not super long but definitively the longest card I've ever made! For me, it killed two birds with one stone so to speak - getting a bit out of my comfort zone with this unusual card size and also using up some patterned paper scraps. Speaking of comfort zones, I can't ever tell you how long it took me to bring it all together... only so much: It was a very fitting time frame for a "long" challenge, though ;-) Anyhow, thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend everyone :)
Stamps: PTI Fresh Alpha, PTI Vintage Labels
Ink: Versamark, PTI vintage cream
Patterned paper: Cosmo Cricket Earth Love (6x6)
Cardstock: PTI dark chocolate, vintage cream and melon berry
Other: PTI Impression Plate (linen), PTI butterfly die, sewing machine / thread, corner rounder, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Caramel Apple), Fiskars Apron Lace punch, foam dimensionals

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...
view from the Danube Tower, observation deck
...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!)...
a carriage near the opera
... 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!
