4 Crafty Chicks Challenge - A Recipe!!!!

The challenge for this week on 4 Crafty Chicks is a recipe - 1 ribbon, 2 dsp, 3 buttons. I've been working on this card for a day or so and when I saw the recipe challenge, well I couldn't believe it. It was the same as I had been fiddling with. So here it is, in all it's glory.

I saw on Heather Summers blog how she used these designer big buttons, so that's what I decided that would be the focal point of my card, thank you Heather.

As at yesterday, 31st March, this card could have been called, Past, Present and Future. The chocolate chip grosgrain - past, Sweet Summer stamp set - present, buttons and dsp Sweet Stitches - future.

I know this card is not my usual style but the sketch seemed to fit what I wanted to do. The sketch I used was Inspirational Card Sketches 107.

Thanks to the team at 4 Crafty Chicks for the challenge. It's still raining here. Have a good day everyone.
