Use a Recipe at Allsorts

Good morning. I'm mega excited today because I will soon be on my way to my lovely blogging buddy Claire's wedding - I feel so lucky to have been invited - thank you hun :o)

Before I set off I have my DT card for this week's new challenge at 

and the lovely Helene has picked


Here's my take on it: 

I have used a very neglected LOTV image - Coffee Break coloured with PM's and Flexmarkers

My 'recipe' is a Birthday Recipe stamp also from LOTV - available here stamped and heat embossed onto a trimmed luggage label tag and inked with Dried Marigold Distress Ink, with a touch of sheer organza ribbon and some twine added.

The very scrummy Design Papers are Bo Bunny 'Vicky B' Collection. I think they go lovely with the Kraft card base - don't you?
I have also used one of my Mother's Day gifts from Jack - Memory Box Cherry Blossom Die - purchased from My Crafty Heart - fab shop with gorgeous products and super speedy service :o)

I have been working at improving my colouring recently and I am quite pleased with how this has turned out - hope you like it too :o)

Challenges I would like enter:
I Love Promarkers - 3 Design Papers
Everybody Art Challenge - Friendship
Going Grey with Scrap Creations - Flowers
Creatalicious - Sketch Challenge #32
Gingerloft - Happy Birthday
OSAAT - Girly
Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
