What an exciting Blog Hop at There's Magic In the Air this week! Nina has some wonderful free digis for us to use and will soon have her store up and ready to share more of her artwork. This is my entry for the chance to be a guest designer. I have been looking at the other entries and they are awesome. The challenge is a recipe (you have until tomorrow to get your entry posted, so get to it!)
The recipe is as follows:
... you MUST follow this "Recipe" to make a card:
Use 1 tag - my sweet tag is on the right
Add 2 textures - cuttlebug stripe paper and ribbon
Mix in 3 pattern papers - background stripes, tag/scallop at bottom, bottom portion under mouse and cupcake
fold in 4 pieces of ribbon - 4 on main image + tag = 5 (ooops, see I can't follow a recipe!!!)
and sprinkle with 5 brads or 5 buttons - 4 on main image + tag = 5
You may also use one color card stock outside the color of the base of your card if you like, but only one.
Now I'm not very good at following recipes, just ask my DH!
Him, "This is good, how did you make it?"
Me, "Well, it called for a teaspoon of butter, but I didn't have any so I substituted mayo."
Me, "And then we were out of noodles, so I used rice instead."
Me, "No onions either, so I used onion salt, ya know it still gives it that 'oniony' flavor."
Him, "So what did you use that is in the recipe?"
Me, "The chicken."
Him, "So it's another one you made up?'
Me, "Yeah, basically"
Me, "So you like it?"
Him, "Yeah, it's good, but will you remember how to make it the next time?"
Me, "Probably not."
So, for me, the hardest part of this card was following the recipe! I must have checked the recipe at least one hundred times, which could be the reason it took all day and I still didn't get it right!
