Challenge #4 A Recipe at I Love Digi - Spot the Difference!!

Hi everyone, and welcome to Challenge #4 at I Love Digi, and for this fortnight we have a recipe for you.

3 Papers, 2 Brads and 1 Embellishment.

I have great pleasure in announcing that our Sponsor for this challenge is Merigan at Bee Crafty, do check out her images they are so fab and the Design Team were lucky enough to be able to play with some.
Now I have two cards to show you because I made a mistake with one of them - didn't quite follow the recipe properly so who can spot the right one!!!!

I used the fab sketch at Friday Sketchers which you can see below - I loved using it.

So did you get it then? The correct card for the recipe is this one.................................

.....................but I really love this one too!

I have used a lot of distressing, inking and shading along with some interesting non crafting products. I have recycled some wall paper - yes you did read that right. The biggest pink flower at the bottom of the three is punched from wall paper and the border across the middle was made from a wallpaper border. I really love how this has worked. I have used my Spellbinders nesties again - best buy recommendation!! find them here.
I coloured the beautiful image in with Promarkers and added glitter to one of them. The other papers are from Summer Driggs Beautimous Kit and a left over from a Triple Treasures CD Rom. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder on the labels too. I think that just about covers it.

Please check out my team mates fantastic creations you can find the links to their blogs in my sidebar - please leave them some LOVE.

I shall enter these cards in the following challenges:-

Pile It On - Animals,

If The Shoe Fits and Allsorts both want you to recycle,

Create 4 Fun - Brown, Pink and Cream,

Sew Many Challenges - Punch it,

Papertake Weekly - Open theme,

Simon Says - It's so distressing.

Even though I don't take part in challenges, I do admire the results! Both cards are pretty but, yes, I see which one is 'right' and which one is 'wrong' - though I'm blessed if I think it matters!
