Recipe Challenge At Sweet Stamps

How about a fun new challenge to get your creative juices going?
This is the challenge for you this week
SWEET STAMPS = Recipe Challenge
1 ribbon or border, 2 design papers, and 3 gems
123 easy as can be.
The border is even furnished for you if you decide not to use ribbon.
My first card is a great image called #7030 Wild Rose Oval
I know I do a lot of Pink- but today I chose yellow to accent this beauty.
Colored with my Copic markers, a second set of flowers I colored were fussy cut and added to the image to give some dimension.
I found these subtle yellow papers in a pile of unused papers- sorry no marks to name them.
Ribbon is from CTMH
Do you remember this fabulous stamp from last month?
This set always reminds me of horseback riding in the Spring- I so miss doing that.
Our fellow team member Jacqueline Hill  did this set and it was Stamp of the month in February.
It still is available as 3003 Horse Portrait Oval or can be purchased from set here.
I had this great western paper from my stash pile
I cut out several mats with one of my favorite Spellbinder shapes.
The funky corduroy ribbon is from CTMH as is the two pewter buttons .
The gold gems are from Pizzazz Aplenty- now I know I really added 6, but I will say 2 sets of three- lol
You know I am a rebel!

I am entering the following Challenges :
The Crazy Challenge- use flowers
Heart To Heart Challenge- Spring has sprung
There's Magic In The Air- use flowers
Really Reasonable Ribbon- use dies or punches& ribbon

Now isn't this a fun challenge? Remember each week we have a winner that gets a gift certificate for $20.00
