Sunday Challenge - Yummy Recipe!

Good morning everybody, Louise Here. I'm full of the joys of spring today. Doesn't life feel so much better when you know you have a week off work?
Thank you so much to everybody who took part in last Sunday's challenge, I was very impressed with the cards you all came up with. There were some really unique ideas out there and I got loads of inspiration from them.
Well, it's that time again and this week I've come up with a nice easy one for you, a recipe!
Here are the ingedients;

1 or more Charmed Downloads
1 brad
Ribbon

Hand doodling/writing
Dry embossing or crimping (CB embossing folders etc..)


Mix them all together and see what happens! Warning....Do NOT put it in the oven! LOL

To get your taste buds ready here are some yummy examples.


By Louise
Matching paper, brad and adhesive ribbon are Dovecraft.

Green paper is Basic Grey and the brad is Dovecraft. Image is Green fingers George from the George at Work Collection.

Dry embossing all over the card - Square and round corner - swirls in the sky, wavy lines in the sea
Brad - Basic Grey Sultry Glazed brad (in the tail)
Ribbon - K&Co Sea Grass paper ribbon (cut out the white bits to leave the waves only)Doodling - Hand-drawn arrow
By Karen

Nicola used her new bind it all, Bind it all accesories, Basic Grey Sultry paper, Cuttlebug embossing folder and a Basic Grey white brad.

Just about everything used for all these projects was purchased from Charmed

So there you go, it's over to you. Don't forget to leave a comment so we can pop by for a nosey.

Happy Crafting

Thanks girls for another amazing challenge. On the write up you said it was an easy one, however I found it so hard. I think havening a 'set' embellishment list was daunting. So after just under 5 days thinking about it I produced the card on my blog. I love it. Thanks so so much, cant wait untill sunday now for the next challenge.

Great challenge and samples. I have used the George at Work download for this one. Still not entirely happy with white space at the top, but couldn't decide what to put there.
