Get Funky! Challenge - Master Chef Recipe

After missing last months challenge at Get Funky! due to the madness here (job interviews, job applications, my illness bug and BF's eye injury!) I have made sure to make my card for this month's challenge in good time! :)

Kathy has set the Master Chef Recipe challenge, which is as follows:
3 different papers, 5 flowers, 2 buttons, 1 length of ribbon & pearls/gems to season.
You must also use the usual 1 Funky Hand product.

Here is my card:

I have used my new (first but surely not last!) Our Betty stamp set. I love this 'Your Special Day' set which is so versatile as it comes with a variety of objects for Betty to hold (and you could add different ones too!) so look out for these in use again very soon!

Here is how I met the recipe:
3 different papers - white for stamping onto, double sided pale pink/pink floral patterned paper, hot pink card.
5 flowers - DC punched from the d/s paper.
2 buttons - bought specially on an emergency trip to a local craft store as I had no pink buttons!
1 length of ribbon - DC adhesive ric rac
Pearls/gems to season - again from DC, mini gem wheel gems as flower centers.

Betty's dress was stamped onto the hot pink card and paper pieced onto the stamped image, skin/hair coloured with promarkers. Also used one of the sentiments from the set too.
Ovals made with my very neglected (for nesties/cricut) xcut shape cutter system, which works much better on a glass mat, wish I'd known this years ago!

Thanks for stopping by, Ni x :)

This is a lovely card. I always love seeing 'Our Betty' stamps on cards..I love her paper pieced dress..that's what I tend to do as much as I can with stamps as my colouring needs some practice!! Thank you for joining in with this months Get Funky! Challenge.

Lovely card Ni. I love the turned over corner with the brad. I've got lots of brads so I think I'll try and incorporate that in a few cards I need to make. Thanks xxL
