365 Cards - Day 227 - Recipe

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards!! Today's challenge is a recipe and like my mother does when she follows a cooking recipe, I added a few extra ingredients :) So Pam's recipe was: 1 tag (as a card base), 2 pieces of ribbon, green, 1 piece of patterned paper, and 2 stamps. Oh well, I think my extra ingredients just makes it sweeter!! I got to use a fabulous Prickley Pear stamps of the bells and the sentiment. I watercolored the image with inks and used my new crown circle nestie to cut the image out. Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Alphabet Challenge Blog - X for xmas
2. Anything Goes Challenge Blog - ribbons
3. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - shaped card: mine is a tag shape
4. cardabilities - sketch
5. Crafty Cardmakers - no square card
6. Fairy Fun Friday - tickets are tags
7. Flourishes - ink and edge distressing: might be hard to see but I distressed the green circle with scissors and ink and the image panel with ink
8. Inky Impressions Challenges  - anything goes
9. Saturday Spotlight - distressing
10. Sentimental Sundays - tag, you're it! + sentiment
11. Stamp Something  - something punchy
12. The TownScrapper - distressing
13. Totally Gorjuss - card which isn't square

Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see what you cook up with today's recipe!
