Week 147 - Use a Recipe

Good Morning Everyone!

Well we have woke up to a gorgeous morning and it only looks as if it is going to better.  Spring has finally arrive and thank goodness too!

This week at Allsorts lovely Helene has given us our Challenge for the week and it is Use a Recipe in our creation of choice so here is my offering:-

and this is the inside of the card.  (I know it isnt brilliant to see but hope that you can make it out!)

I have used Joanna's Country Kitchen Spiced Peaches set of stamps, I had the pleasure of demonstrating these on a C and C show a few weeks ago and they are a set of 5 at the moment.
The detail on the stamps are super and make a really unusual card for lots of occasions.
As you can see I have used lots of vintage colours (vintage photo & spiced marmalade) and hopefully made it look a bit Victorian. The papers were from my stash and the lovely foliage is from the Tim Holtz die.  If you can spot it in the foliage there is a shrink plastic jam jar from Joanna's stamps.  
Not sure if I got where I wanted to go but I was happy with the result. What I love about this set of stamps is that the recipe is included.

I hope that you all pop over to the Allsorts Challenge to have a look at the stunning ideas from the design team and I hope that you can join in this week too.  We have some fabulous sponsors again.
Must dash now I have 10 lovely ladies that are waiting for me to start a scrapbooking class!!
Have a fabulous weekend and enjoy the super weather and .....
Dont forget to alter the clocks!!!

Bye for now
