7 Kids College Fund Challenge #3: A recipe!

Hello everyone!

Today we're kicking off our third challenge at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog.  This time around, we're asking you to create something using a recipe: 1 image from the 7 Kids store, 3 flowers, 2 designers papers, and something sparkly.  Doesn't that sound like an easy challenge?

For this card, I've used two designer papers from the BasicGrey Capella 6x6 paper pad.  There are so many beautiful sheets of this paper and I just love using it! The great thing about it that I've noticed is that it has light papers and dark papers, so I can get a variety of different types of cards done with it.  I still haven't gotten my hands on the Oliver and Oliva paper pads, but I'll be placing an order for those soon!

Well, who says I can't follow direction?  I do!  I didn't realize that we were only supposed to use one image for the recipe.  I've used two in mine : /  For the stamps, I've use the Magnolia Stamps: Tilda with Jolly Roger and Sea Background . These two stamps are from two different collections: Tilda with Jolly Roger is from the Fairy Tale collection and the Sea Background is from the Bon Voyage collection, but they go so well together.  I knew I just had to put them together into one card. The sentiment is from the Whimsy Stamps Birthday Letter Seals.  I've used Stickles to add a little sparkle to the ocean water.  I've colored the images using my distress reinkers and roughed up the edges a bit with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.

Also, don't forget the Magnolia Cozy Autumn Collection is also now on pre-order at 7 Kids!  You can see them all HERE.  I can't wait till they come in!! Of course, I've already ordered some :)
