Simon Says Challenge ! # 3

What a fantastic response we had to last week's challenge of recycling - well done to all those who entered.

This week's challenge we are doing some cooking ! Yes, we have a receipe for you !

The receipe we would like you to use is :

2 x papers
1 x ribbon
3 x buttons

This is what I cooked up !

The two patterned papers are from BasicGrey Sugared.

The green card is from the Papermania card stack.

The image is by Stampendous and is Changito Monkey. I won three of these stamps on the Simon Says Stamp blog when they were offering them as blog candy. They can be purchased in the Simon Says Stamp store. This cheeky fella has been coloured with ProMarkers and matted onto the green card which ran through my swirls Cuttlebug folder.

The leaves have been punched from my fabby new punches from Woodware. They had some jungle cards in the latest issue of Craft Stamper magazine and I fell in love with these leaves when I saw them (and the stamps !) and knew they would be perfect with this stamp and for this card. I have edged the leaves with vintage photo distress ink and added some highlights with a white pen.

The raffia ribbon is from Hobbycraft.

The buttons are BasicGrey.

I also decorated the inside of the card too. The sentiment is computer generated.

This challenge runs from today for the next two weeks so you have plenty of time to enter.

Heidi of Simon Says Stamp is offering a prize of $25 to spend on anything at all in the Simon Says Stamp Store !

I'm looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations.
