Card maker's recipe

Kathy is setting our challenge at Daring Cardmakers today and she’s sending us to the card maker’s kitchen with a recipe.

Our classic ingredients are flour (flowers), butter (yellow), eggs (oval shape, nest, bird) and sugar (glitter). I think I might have the wrong lid on an ink pad as one of my flowers came out more orange than yellow but I decided my cake was a St Clements and rolled with it!

I gave the stamped flowers a few flicks of Copic marker for just a bit of depth and then cut them out and arranged them on the stitched rectangle die cut, I often like to have an edge of some sort that things can break out of! A scattering of pearl pen dots with some glitter and an oval sentiment panel to fulfil my recipe requirements and call it done.

Pretty color combo with the teal. And the copics did add a nice touch.
