It's Recipe Time


Monday again, but this may be a holiday for many of you and if not, I hope that it's the start of a great week. You know that Mondays around my blog are magical and this week is no different. My fellow designer at TMITA , Nilla has challenged us this week to use any acquired image from Paper Cupcakes and use her recipe: 1 ribbon, 2 embellishments(pearls, brads, rhinestones, etc.), 3 dp's and 4 flowers and the next thing you know you have a beautiful card made. This week I am using Nina's image "Cart with Flowers" which I think is lovely and hopefully you will too! I decided to make it more of a monochromatic look by using greens. My card base is Stampin' Up whisper white and I used SU's retired dp Paper Prints in certainly celery. I colored the image by using Memento new sprout, SU mellow moss, creamy caramel and close to cocoa. I cut out the image with Spellbinders nesties and also punched some flowers with a SU flower punch which I roughed up and took the card stock apart so that I could layer the flowers. My 2 embellies are Gina K's pearls mounted on the flowers in the cart. I am very happy with the soft look of this and hope that you will love it too. Check out this image and many more beautiful ones at the Paper Cupcakes store and be sure and check out the other design team's creations this week...
Come on cook one up with us!
