A Recipe Challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks

Welcome back to another 4 Crafty Chicks challenge! Thanks to everyone who played with us last week. You really rocked the Metal challenge. This week is my turn to host challenge #21 and it is a RECIPE!! Yep you heard me a recipe...*giggle*. I have wanted to design my own recipe challenge since I played in my first recipe challenge.





The real challenge for me was to use three pattern papers. Sometime I just find them hard to use so as a result I break out my embossing folders. Like many of you I have a paper addiction to pretty paper, but it gets put aside in a drawer and not used. So walking on the wild side, three pattern papers it was. My great crafting pals whipped their cards together and boy are they fantastic.
Things have been crazy busy but Lori and I were able to get some more stuff done for our trip in March. It was a good day with laughs and shopping so a little help with idea's was needed. I turned to these fantastic ladies to help me out Inspirational Card Sketches (it is a stunning sketch). Creative Belli Blog Challenge #109 is letter P ( pattern paper and pearl brads). Freshed Brewed Blog #31 - Share some love or Valentines day - my sentiment and color choice!

Here is my creation! My paper ( pretty in pink, chocolate chip, real red, very vanilla), ribbon, felts, heart punch, heart stamp and real red , chocolate chip ink all Stampin Up. Pearl brads and my tree image is new and I think it is a Norwood (??) Stamp. I think the paper worked pretty good together. I would like to do some more with my new stamp, work the colors a little bit better, try some shading with it!

This was a lot of fun for me to make. I hope that you will enjoy a walk on the wild side of pattern paper with me. Each week the I am inspired by what you create. Can't wait to see what you come up with this week for 4 Crafty Chicks.

Be sure to stop bye to see Leanne, Lori, and Melissa for they are crafty chicks alright! Their recipe cards are wonderful. Thanks girls for rockin another challenge!!
