Challenge card... 4 papers, 3 flowers, 2 ribbons and a button...

Hi everyone, how is the new year treating you so far? I'm just keeping everything crossed that we don't get any more snow, we're booked for a week in London and have booked to see Blood Brothers (which I LOVE!) and Ghost Story for while we're there, I'd hate to miss out because of another snow storm! So keep your fingers crossed for us, we go Sunday 17th so hopefully we'll be ok!

This week at Creative Inspirations there's a recipe challenge to follow: 4 papers, 3 flowers, 2 ribbons and a button, so here's what I came up with...

Caroline from CI sent me a couple of these Tildas for me to colour in, and now I definately think I'll buy her, she's fab to colour.

Tilda's coloured with distress inks, and the corners are stamped with the grunge corner and splatter stamp form the grunge collection by Stempelglede  - a Christmas purchase! (I got my set from BunnyZoes crafts but Quixotic paperie get them too)

The sentiment is from a mini sentiment set by Whimsy stamps (this one is from Quixotic paperie). I tried to make this look a bit like a rosette by adding ribbon and a button to it.

Everything is edged in walnut stain. The papers are from the DCWV "All about Girls" paper stack.

Thank you so so much for looking, and thank you to everyone who has left me comments over the last year, they have kept me motivated. I'm sorry I have not left regular messages with you all, I will endeavour to improve this year!

Hugs. Katy. xxx
