Ruby's Rainbow - Recipe Challenge

I can't believe it's already time for another challenge at Ruby's Rainbow - time is just flying by so fast. It feels like an extra celebration is in order - for today is the last day of winter here in Australia! I do not like the cold, so I am always happy to see the end of the winter months.

The challenge this fortnight is a recipe. We want to see 3 designer papers, 2 buttons or brads, and one flower on your creations this time. Here is what I came up with for the challenge :

I am really disappointed with how this photo turned out. Completely my own fault, I photographed this card and didn't realise I had accidently left my camera set to a white balance setting that gives everything a lovely yellow hue. You can't see the lovely browns and greens on the gorgeous papers. As I had made this card for a friend, I then gave it to her for her birthday before I got the photo off the camera. Oh well, hopefully you get the idea anyway. Serves me right for not checking my camera before using it.

This card gave me a chance to use my very first flower die - Tim Holtz Tattered Florals. I think the one big flower makes a nice statement without overwhelming the card.

To see what the rest of the DT created and to enter your own creation, please head over to Ruby's Rainbow. I hope to see you there.

As always, thank you for your lovely comments and for visiting this little blog. I hope you have a fabulous week.

I think all of us in blogland know how to look at a picture of a card and adjust for camera oddities, and this one looks BEAUTIFUL!
