Tasty Recipe

Click on image to enlarge

I know that the clue is in the name, i.e. - challenge.......but Cynthia really did challenge me with this one! On Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog this week, Cynthia has given us a recipe to follow:

  • Take one white card.
  • One rubber stamp.
  • A hand made flower or two.
  • Some ribbon.
  • A couple of corner peel offs or peel off strips.
  • oh, I nearly forgot - and the colour scheme of RED, BLUE AND SILVER
I looked at this and immediately went blank - but eventually came up with what you see above. I hope it'll be okay because I have used two stamps instead of one, my hand made flowers have been stamped, embossed and cut out in two different sizes then layered up and I've used a mixure of two straight lines and one corner in the peel off department. The white card is the base card. The stamps are from Elusive Images and Umount.
Thank you my friend, once again you have really stretched me with this one! :-)


  1. I wish I'd made this card Ann. It's beautiful. It may have stretched your mind but your mind is obviously very flexible.
