CCCB # 6 ~ Recipe Card

You are getting a little head start here if you are a City Crafter Challenge Blog supporter

The new challenge (week 6) is coming on live in just a few hours time, but if you are here now (Monday 9 PM EST), you may get your paper and glue going for our new challenge that will come on live midnight of Tuesday.

I am so crazy over making these tissue flowers lately, when Linda told me she is going to do a recipe card for CCCB week 6, and it got to have
1 ribbon, 2 papers, and 3 flowers
3 flowers????? Oh good, now I have 3 times more of a chance to make my favorite tissue paper flowers, LOL!

So, I am showing you 3 flowers here, I used brown tissue paper for one, white tissue paper for another, and colored it with light pink and light brown chalk, I just love how soft the effect of the chalk. And the last one, I used a mixture of brown, dark pink, baby pink and white tissue paper on different layer, colored the white with the same chalk I used for
flower # 2.
And here are my 3 flowers!

Here's a tiny tag with a tiny birdie, not part of the recipe but Linda said it is ok to have other embellies

My ribbon is the seam binding, the 2 papers I used are PTI and a pink card stock, the same card stock for the scallop square in the middle, just with different color distress ink, oops, I cheated! not really, we are allowed to use 2 or more papers! The square in the middle is actually a lighter shade of pink card stock

Cream Color Crotchet Lace Trim is from Krafty Kirsty

Hurry hurry! get your paper, glue, and embellies out, by the time the clock strike 12, your card could be up at City Crafter Challenge Blog for our week 6 challenge!
