DDSC # 72 - Recipe

Hello Again!
Back with my second post - this time with my DT card for this week's challenge over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges where we have a fun recipe for you to use - 1 Ribbon, 2 DPs and 3 Buttons. How simple is that.

For my card I have used this image of a sewing basket which suited the recipe perfectly. You can find this lovely image here in the shop. I wrapped some embroidery thread around one of the labels for effect and stitched one of the buttons to a piece of ribbon with the same thread to form a sort of bow. There are only 2 DPs on the card - one is a patchwork image.

Close-up of buttons as they are a bit dark in the main picture!

The inside using the same patchwork image as on the front!!

The rest of the DT girlies have made some fab creations to inspire you and we all hope you will come join in the fun. Once again, let me remind you that if you use a Digi Doodle Shop image, you get a second entry into the challenge and there is still a great promotion running in the shop - see sidebar for details.  Oh and there is a DT call going out over on the blog too so you definitely need to pop over there :0)

Colouring medium - Promarkers
DPs - From the Affection collection @ Nitwits
Tickets and labels - freebie (sorry can't remember where from)
Ribbon and thread- stash
Buttons - my Mum's button box 

Happy Crafting
Denise xx
