Cookin' Up a Card!

It's RECIPE time at FOR FUN this week! We have the fabulous TLC Creations as our sponsor this week, and the DT got to work with some of their gorgeous images.

So, here's the recipe you nedd to get cookin' up your creations this week:
  • 1 image
  • 1 sentiment
  • 2 colours
  • 2 ribbons

My card is an acetate tent card, one of my faves at the moment! The image was a dream to colour (I used Promarkers) then highlighted with some Stickles. The sentiment comes as part of the image, and reads 'Flowers feed the Soul.' The DPs are from my stash, I THINK they are Dovecraft, but can't be 100% sure. I chose brown and reddish/pink as my 2 colours, and that leaves my 2 ribbons, which you can find behind the image on the back of the acetate tent, one reddish/pink, 1 brown; (they are lace-ribbon.) The papers have been border-punched using a Martha Stewart border punch. I cut a flower from the leftover DP and attached to the back panel of acetate, on the inside. The image has been matted onto co-ordinating paper, and I then finished it off with some flat-backed heart pearls.

I am entering the following challenges:
Don't forget to pop over and leave some love for the DT girls at FOR FUN, and of course, get your pinnies on and start baking!!!!! I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your creations!
