Allsorts Challenge - Guest Designer Card

I was thrilled last week to see that I'd won the guest designer spot on the Allsorts Challenge for the next two weeks...ok, so I know it was picked by, but I was still excited! lol

Anyway, this week's challenge has been set by Lisa, and is a 'Recipe':

3 Flowers, 2 Papers and 1 Ribbon (plus image & sentiment)

I picked a Rachelle Anne Miller stamp ('Rainy Days') that hasn't seen any ink in a while to use for my card, and watercoloured it to match these yummy My Mind's Eye papers ('Adore'). The sentiment stamp is by Whiff of Joy...and it goes perfectly with this image. I layered up my three flowers (from Poppicrafts), attaching them with a Papermania pearl brad, and used my ribbon to tie a bow around the centre of the card. The finishing touch was a small heart-shaped brad (from Tesco).

Make sure you go and check out the cards by the Design Team...I just know that they'll have cooked up some really delicious creations! lol
