c4e recipe challenge #1

Sorry I'm a bit late with today's c4e challenge post, I haven't been feeling well the last few days :(
Today we started a new style of challenge over on the c4e blog. Each week we will be posting a RECIPE for you to follow. We will still have the popular sketches but will now post 2-3 other ingredients to go with the sketch. We will also have more prizes!!! YAY!!!
This weeks recipe is:
1.Use the sketch
2.use a punch
3. add a knot or bow
The prize this week is a little cardmakers goody bag! To be in with a chance to win you will need to include all of the recipe ingredients in your project. The challenge is still open to anyone anywhere and all types of craft, cards, layouts, digital etc.
Hop over to the c4e blog to see the beautiful DT work!!!

For my card I have used some beautiful Basic Grey PP from the Sultry and Sugared collections. CS is Bazzill, ribbon from stash and printed sentiment.

I have used a 1" circle punch to cut out the CS buttons, attached a smaller circle of PP then added a couple of holes with a brad tool. To finish I knotted some ribbon through them.
The sentiment was punched with a circle punch.

The butterfly is an Autumn Leaves stamp, stamped onto CS cut out and inked. Before attaching to the card I added a couple of pearl branches for antenna. Finished with liberal amounts of glitter glue.

The image is a Beatrix Potter stamp called mice in shoes (will be available in the c4e store next week) I have coloured it with watercolour paints and glitter glue!!
I used the circle punch on all the corners of the image, PP and CS (must get some nice corner punches!)
The C4E October kit will be released this week! A little late but I hope worth the wait!! It has PP from MME, glitter thickers, prima stamp, maya road album, paper flowers, ribbon, brads, beads, gems, fabric........yummy!!! Hopefully I will get to play with it today!!
Have a lovely day
thanks for stopping by
