Gorgeously Made for As You See It 305

Time goes quickly and we're back around to the Recipe Challenge. For this challenge, all you need to do is create something that uses all of the ingredients on the recipe card. In this case a 'thank you' sentiment, some patterned paper, a circle of some sort, enamel dots, a die cut and shades of yellow.

I had a problem in that I don't use much patterned paper and the only patterned paper I had in yellow was Wild Wheat. I know some people mightn't think of it as yellow but when it's beside Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lolly, the 'yellowness' of it is enhanced and it's definitely a golden colour. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! It does look more yellow in real life, that's for sure!

I used some strips from my scrap box to create a striped card before die-cutting with the largest Stylish Shapes circle.

I die cut two of the foliage dies from Gorgeously Made, one in Wild Wheat and one in Pebbled Path. The label tag is from the same die set. 

If you live in New Zealand and buy the Gorgeously Made bundle from me, you'll receive a tutorial package with exclusive projects created by me and by Joanne James aka The Crafty Owl, as well as access to our private Facebook Group. If you live in Europe or UK, you'll get the same deal from her. Details are here.

The Wild Wheat dots are a gorgeous golden shade of yellow and help to draw the eye to the sentiment. 

We'd love to see what you make with these ingredients. Visit the As You See It page to see what the rest of the team have done and to link up your own entry. You can join in with us until Wednesday 23 August, 11.59pm PST.

  4. I just love the circle of strips Jan and this is a great way to bring out the yellow in Wild Wheat. The stripes and pattern is also a great way to liven up those leaf stems - so much to love about this card!
