Ready, Steady, Cook

The DCM Dare this week was set by Kathy

So, what's this week's dare all about?Here in the UK there's a TV programme that's been going for years. A couple of viewers are invited to bring a bag of cookery ingredients to the studio and two top chefs have to make a meal using the contents of those bags - they don't know what will be in the bags beforehand.So this dare is my take on that theme - I'll tell you the ingredients you have to use, then all you have to do is make the card.

Here are your ingredients:
3 different papers
At least one piece of chipboard
At least 1 button
At least 1 piece of ribbon
optional: 1 extra item/element of your choice

That's about it, all you need to do now is sort out your bits of stash and make up your card - you're allowed to use whatever paints, pens and inks you like, but otherwise you must stick to the ingredients in the list.

I combined my card with the Stamp Something as the main part of my card - the flower - is green!

This week we are thinking GREEN! Spring is right around the corner as is St. Patty's day, so what better challenge than Green Somethings! All you need to do is use the color green as the main part of your project. So it could be different shades of green papers, ribbons, or flowers. You could use greens to color your image, anything with the color green is good for this challenge.

I also used the sketch from the Inspirational Card Sketches blog (not bad eh?)

Phew..........that took some remembering!
