Bearly Mine Challenge - Tuesday 18 January 2011

It's time for challenge No 2 over at Bearly Mine Challenge Blog.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a card done in time for challenge no 1 to support Donna and her Design Team in their new venture.  I wish them luck though.

Challenge No 2 at Bearly Mine is "tis a recipe" - 3 flowers, 2 backing papers and 1 image.  For my card I have used two papers from the Bearly Mine Country Collection, one with two halves of different pink and then a patterned pink/green one, distressing the pink sheet with my Tim Holtz's distressing tool and highlighting it with a chalk ink pad.  A blogging friend/fellow Design Team member had some stamps for sale recently and I jumped at the chance of buying some more to add to my collection.  I have coloured this Manga Sugar Nellie stamp with Promarkers, cut her out with a die-cut, distressed the edges with a chalk ink pad and then thread thin ribbon through the holes in the die-cut.  The card is then finished off with some flowers from the Bearly Mine Country Collection with brads for their centres, three gems and a Happy Birthday sentiment I was given.

This card also fits the following challenges:
