>>> 365 Cards Day 55 <<<

The challenge today is 'Card Recipe' where you had to use the following in making the card:

5x5 card (solid colored card stock - may be smooth or textured)
4x4 patterned paper (you may alter the edges if you'd like)
1 shape (circle, square, star, heart, etc.) - must be solid color
3 jewels
alpha stickers

Have to admit I found this rather hard. I'm more a freestyle kinda person, and feel a wee bit restrained having to follow the 'rules'. Anyway, not one to give up a challenge so here's my effort:

Patterned paper by Crate Paper Blue Hill collection. The circular shape is actually one whole shape comprising of different little ones within. So I merely took a couple out. Think I fulfilled the requirements. Can't say I'm overly impressed by it but hey, I did it!

Just a short note to thank those who left me an award. I'll get is sorted asap. I seem to be running out of time these days and I'm not even working full time! TTFN!
