StephI used papers that I've had in my stash for months. I didn't actually think I'd ever use em but thankfully I kept them. I backed them onto silver mirror card and attached them with Pinflair. The image is by our sponsor Lili of the Valley which I coloured with ProMarkers. I mounted that onto a scalloped square and added roses and a wooden butterfly. The sentiment is Hunky Dory and I added the gems for that special bling!

Josie: For the recipe I chose Swirls, Gems and Flowers. I used this gorgeous Lili of the Valley stamp and coloured with pro makers.

Hi there!  This week I have picked these items from the recipe: Purple & Turquoise; Ribbon (paper pleat); Sentiment; Beads.
The image is from our lovely sponsor, LOTV, and is called Swing Time, coloured in with both Flexmarkers and Promarkers, then die cut using Spellbinders Labels A.  The sentiment is also from LOTV, from the Dreamy Days set, die cut using Spellbinders Floral Doily Motif and highlighted with lilac pearlescent chalk.  
The base card is Wisteria Wonder, topped with Tempting Turquoise card stock.  The DSP is Tempting Turquoise from the Brights Collection for the ribbon paper pleat, and Flirtatious for the background, all from Stampin' Up!  The accent beads are from my ever growing bead stash :).  Have fun with your creations xx

ShelbyFor this challenge, I went with turquoise and pink, sentiment, ribbon/twine, gems and glitter.  I used this wonderful new image from Make it Crafty and paired it up with MME 12 Days of Christmas paper.  The turquoise glitter is from Tonerex, the pearls are Melissa Frances and the twine from MME Lime Twist Collection.  The stocking dies and coordinating sentiments from Whimsy Stamps were embossed with white Filigree.  And of course, the image was colored up with copics.

For my recipe I used: Pink and Turquoise, Ribbon, Sentiment, and Gems. I used this Gorgeous image from The Digi Stamp Boutique * Hattie And Friend* and coloured her with my ever trusty Promarkers, and added glittery snow to her coat and headband pompom. The papers are from my stash as are the buttons and ribbon. The little embossed circle is a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.

Paula  For my recipe i chose turquoise and grey, ribbon, sentiment and glitter.  My image is a Tickled Pink digi image which i've coloured with Copic pens and Prisma Pencils, i also added some glossy accents to the roses, and eyes.  I coloured some white ribbon with the same Copic pen, i then stamped the Dream Ticket Sentiment which is from Creative Expressions.  I've used Stickles to glitter round the ticket and also on the four corners of my card and image.  The papers i've used are from Black Market Paper Society.

Hi Everyone!
For this week I used from the recipe...Turquoise and Pink (obviously), Flowers, a Sentiment and Gems.

As it is October and is Breast Awareness Month I found this Free Digi Stamp and knew it had to be used!! It is by Tricia Moore from her site Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I coloured this with my trusty Pro and Aqua Markers.
The papers are from a Kanban CD Rom.
The big turquoise flower is from Polkadoodles CD rom called All About and Everywhere.
The pink flowers I made myself using a punch and some scissors.
Gems and pearl from stash.
Sentiment I made myself.
all for the card below :)

Hi everyone, I thought this may be a recipe for disaster as I opted for something other than my usual "first choice preferences" 
section 1 Turquoise and Grey's, section 2  Ribbon, section 3 sentiment, section 4 beads.
L.O.T.V image coloured with pro markers, nestabilities oval deckle edge die and i paper pierced around the edge, design paper from my minds eye " true blue" collection, stamped around the design using sentiment from woodware, silver grey ribbon and pearl beads from stash.

To make my card I used scrapbook paper from Oriental Trading's pastel paper pack.  I cut the Christmas ornament with my Silhouette Cutting Machine and embellished it with homemade faux flower soft and Martha Stewart glitter.  The finishing touch was a bit of ribbon from my stash.

Hi everyone! From this week's recipe I chose turquoise and pink, ribbon, swirls, and gems. The image is a digi from Saturated Canary, a site I am currently hopelessly in love with! She's coloured with a mixture of Promarkers and Flexmarkers, with a few drops of Glossy Accents on the water droplets. The (barely visible) patterned paper is My Mind's Eye and the pink panel is Coredinations embossed with my Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls folder, the ribbon just came from my ever increasing ribbon jar!

Doreenfor my card I used 1. turquoise and grey, 2. feather and 3. sentiment, section 4. beads.
I used the Sail Away stamp from stamping Up which I heat embossed. The Cardstock is from Stampin Up too and also embossed.

 Kelly This week for my card i was a bit greedy and used Torquoise and Pink, Flowers and Ribbon, Gems and Glitter and Sentiment and a charm. I have used this gorgeous little girl from LOTV, which i picked up at Ally Pally a few weeks ago.  She is coloured with promarkers and Copics and glittered with glamour dust. I have adde blue ribbon and white lace, from my stash.  The paper is from Wild rose Studio Gingham paper pack.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts,  Gems and charm were in my stash.  The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 U.
