A Spoon Full of Sugar - How about a Recipe Challenge?

Hello - Today is Tuesday and that is A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Day again , and this week there is a fun Recipe to follow. Recipe Challenges can be really fun, as you can go anyway you want just make sure to get in all the ingredients!

Our Ingredients this week are:
3 - Pattern Papers
3 - Flowers or Buttons
3 - Gems

Pretty easy ingredients that we all have in our stash. For my card I went with one of the new Stampavie Sarah Kay images, "Eloise and Mimi saying hello" You know me.. I just adore Sarah Kay - and these Fall images are just wonderful for any occasion.

I colored with my Copics and inked the edges, and highlighted with white gel pen.
Then I went to work on the Recipe - First finding three pattern papers that all worked well together. I decided that the GCD Independence Collection had the warm fall feel I wanted and all the patterns worked well with each other. I layered three patterns inking the edge of each piece. I love that the dark red pattern has a gold glitter to it. Then to the flowers or buttons... ok when given the choice, I usually go with flowers.. LOL So I found three cream colored Mulberry Roses - I love them, but wanted something different for leaves this time - I decided to pull out some of my older white flat flowers, and I colored them with a Green Copic marker, they glue dotted the roses on top of them. That is what I was looking for! A more grown layer. For the gems.. hmm where am I going to put them to show them off - I decided that a satin ribbon band wrapped around the middle, that was a good place to show off those 3 gems. For my Sentiment I used a Stamps by Judith "Thinking of You" and punched it out with a Stampin up word window punch.

So I do believe I got all my ingredients in - wasn't to hard :0) Hope you will pop over to A Spoon Full of Sugar and see how the other DT came out with the recipe challenge and then join us in "baking up" your own!

Well I am off... Hubby has today off and I think we are going to do some shopping - Shame I have no clue what I am doing for Christmas gifts this year - nope no clues... this may be a down to the wire year for me. I don't like that - I am usually so much more organized, and have a few handmade gifts already started or finished by now. Nope not a thing going... LOL

Have a wonderful day - and see you tomorrow for "Me and My Space" Day -
HUGS and-
