No Bake Recipes with the Secret Crafter Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the new challenge at the

The theme this week set by our very talented Jane and she has chosen

A Recipe 
consisting of 1 image, 2 papers, 3 flowers, 4 brads and 5 gems/pearls

now you would think that as I tend to fill most of the white areas of my cards with anything and everything, that this one would be easy for me, you would be wrong.........................stopping myself adding to many papers, flowers, etc is the hard bit...............but then I do love a challenge, so here is what I created for this weeks inspirational piece
This is another 12" x 10" card, which has been punched around the page.  The base layer and contrast is that lovely coffee pearlescent paper.  On top of this are some delicious vintage Prima papers, just the two as required.  The one image is a vintage image located on the wonderful web.  Three little distressed white roses from Wild Orchid with a couple Marianne die cut fronds to compliment them. Four gold brads at the corner of each image and Five pearls, one on the sentiment, and two on each of the tag scrolls.  All edges have been distressed as has the doily and the sentiment, which is of course from My Sentiments Exactly.  Distress Ink Used, is Tim Holtz antique linen.

Now please do pop over and see my teamies fabulous creations, and on that note, do also pop and introduce yourselves to two of our new design team members, Linda and Janet, don't forget we are still looking for four more members, so if you have not already pop over to the challenge site and link up.
