Die Cut Dreams Challenge #102 Recipe and Bloghop.

Hello everyone.
Monday again and that means time for another new challenge at Die Cut Dreams.
Now this fortnight is a bit special for us here at Die Cut Dreams because not only do we have our beloved Boss Lady Susie Sugar back with us after her house move, the Die Cut Dreams shop has re-opened and the Challenge blog has also surpassed 700 followers - how cool is that??
So to celebrate we are having a BLOG HOP.

You should have arrived here from Crafty Chris's blog but if not please go back to the Challenge blog and start from there.
So in order to qualify for the main prize which is:
"A Pizza Box full of Mixed Theme & Mixed Shape Die cut Dreams Designer Die cuts worth over £25 !!!"
you will need to stop by each of the Design Team members blogs and leave a comment on their challenge creation. As an added bonus some of the Design Team are also offering Candy on their blogs but you won't know which blogs the candy is on until after the Hop when we announce the winners.
So onto the challenge

The theme this time is:
  Recipe ; 2 Brads, 3 Gems, 4 Flowers .

And here is my card:

The papers are from Tim Holtz - Vintage Shabby 12" x 12" , the flowers are a stamp from Hero Arts, the Die cuts are from Spellbinders and Mariannes designs. the brads and gems are from my stash and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
Remember to leave me a comment before you go just in case I have candy on my blog.

Don't forget you have several choices, you can enter the challenge, do the hop and leave a comment on each DT member's blog in which case you could win several times or you could just do the hop, it's up to you.

From here you will need to go to the talented Christine L's blog.

Have fun on the hop which lasts for the next two weeks along with the current challenge.

Winners will be announced on the Die Cut Dreams blog when we post the next challenge.

Have fun everyone.
