A New Challenge – It’s a Recipe!!

Hi Peeps!
How was your weekend?  Mine was fabulous, really.  Nothing super exciting . . . just nice and relaxing.  I wanted to pop in and let you know that the ABC Toys & Crafts Design team is participating in a little challenge, and we wanted to make sure that you all knew that we’d love for you to play along with us!  It’s a fun one – a recipe!  We were challenged to use the following recipe on a card or project:
1 Punch
2 Stamps
3 Embellishments
Fun, huh?
Get Well Wishes
Of course, I had to bring out my all time fave My Cute Stamps set – Elegant Birds.  Love, love, love those images.  I stamped the bird cage onto cream cardstock and cut it out using my Labels 10 Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I colored the image with my Copics, and shaded around the image (while still inside the Nestie) with chalk ink and a dobber.  The rest is pretty self-explanatory.  Here’s proof that I met the challenge:
1 Punch – Pinking Scallop Border Punch (Martha Stewart Crafts)
2 Stamps – Elegant Birds (My Cute Stamps) and Floral Frenzy (Papertrey Ink)
3 Embellishments  - Hibiscus Burst Satin Ribbon (PTI), Buttons (PTI), and Scrapper’s Floss (Karen Foster)
We so would love it if you played along with us!!  And there’s a prize!!
All of the details of the challenge, as well as Mr. Linky (where you should add a direct link to your project), can be found on the ABC TOYS & CRAFTS DESIGN BLOG.  You have until Friday, April 30th, to enter your project!!  This project also qualifies for the Curtain Call Color Challenge:  Act 27 - fun!!
Thanks for stopping by today!  I so appreciate it!
