It's RECIPE TIME at For Fun Challenges

Happy Hump-Day to you all! Is it just me, or has there been a distinct change in the weather recently? There's definately a feel of winter where we are, and it puts me in mind of ... dare I mention the 'C' word?!?!

Anyway, nothing to do with Christmas (whoops! Said it!) for the challenge this week at For Fun, we have a RECIPE for you; we want you to use:
1 food item
2 different backing papers
3 buttons, or brads, or eyelets

We have a new sponsor this week, it's Clear Dollar Stamps, and they have provided the images for the DT creations this week. The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate for digital images from their shop.

Here's my card:

I made a thank you card using this adorable 'sweet-stuff gumball' image. I am disappointed with the photo as the colours are much more vibrant than they look here :( I used some Doodlebug papers I've had in my stash forever and coloured the image with matching Promarkers.

I used a very simple layout, matted and layered on co-ordinating bazzill cardstock from my stash. I created the sentiments on the computer and used co-ordinating colours.

Finally I added 3 buttons from my stash to complete. So, there you have it, I stuck closely to the recipe and used 1 food item (gumball image,) 2 backing papers (1 striped, 1 spotty,) and 3 buttons (1 dark pink, 1 light pink & 1 yellow.)

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and check out the work of our awesome DT! We look forward to seeing your creations this week.

I will enter my card into the following challenges:
