LTS Challenge #4 and CC Challenge #48

This card is for Love to Scrap! (LTS) Challenge #4 - Cut It Out and Creatalicious (CC) Challenges #48 - Let's Make a Cake. Sassy Studio Designs (SSD) is sponsoring both challenges. What a wonderful coincidence! ;) lol I've used SSD's digital image called Fourth of July Honey. I could not find a direct link. I looked on every single page at the SSD site to find the image. I'm thinking it may have been retired because I did not find this one but I found an image  called USA Honey in their Small World Collection. You can find the image on this page about 3/4 down the page. It appears to be a new collection. I haven't been over there in awhile and I saw a whole bunch of new images I'm thinking about going back to get! :)

LTS's challenge calls for using die cuts or punches. I did use punches! I made the flowers from a small flower punch. I punched six flower shapes for each flower. I also used a small snowflake punch to layer 3 snowflakes behind each flower to make an appearance of leaves peeking out from behind the flowers. I saw this idea on Pinterest. What an incredibly helpful site! ;) lol Not addictive in any shape or form either! ;)

CC's challenge is based on a recipe and what a recipe it is! I have to say... I found it to be very challenging. Isn't that what a challenge is all about after all? lol It is also a very fun recipe! Here it is:

1 ribbon/bow
2 buttons
2 flowers
1 clip / stitch / fastening
2 patterned papers
glitter (any kind)

Here is the card:
Unless otherwise noted, all supplies are from my stash. I used a total of THREE patterned card stocks (the red mat is printed with a crumpled red paper design... kinda hard to see that in the picture), THREE buttons with twine, THREE flowers made from TWO different PUNCHES, silk RIBBON from Raisin Boat tied into a BOW, rhinestones, a CLIP and STICKLES Stardust GLITTER GLUE to add shimmer to the flag and flowers. I also dabbed a dot on the blue button to keep the twine from unraveling. :) I colored the image with Copic markers. 

Well, that took my breath away! lol ;) Thanks for stopping by! :)
