C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #100

Happy day before Friday, all! 

Thanks for visiting today, and please join me for another SUPER FUN C.R.A.F.T. Challenge

This week's challenge presents you with a RECIPE:

1 Ribbon

1 Tag

2 Squares

and a Circle.

We have TWO lovely sponsors for this week's challenge:


PRIZE: 5 rolls of their new Spring Dayzee and Gumdrops selection
- AND -


PRIZE: 2 Images of the winner's choice!

Here is my Design Team sample using 'Flower Fairy' by LiaStampz
There's my CIRCLE! I printed the full image in black & white on craft cardstock, then printed a duplicate onto X-press It Blending Stock & cut out the fairy using a circle punch. I've been wanting to try this technique, and I love how this came out!

  Here's the TAG - with the RIBBON, which was tucked beneath the front image....

...And here's a full view of my card, which includes 2 SQUARES

This was my first RECIPE challenge & I must admit -it sure made it easier to put this project together!

Fraiends, thanks again for visiting. Please leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by 'coz I love to hear from you!
