DCM - Ready steady cook!

This week the dare is set by Kathy.

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
What a fab dare! The twist for the design team was that Kathy assembled an envelope full of ingredients for each of us so that we were more limited. I loved everything that Kathy sent. I have no idea who made the papers but I want some more! They are lush. I had no idea what I was going to make when I sat down with all my bits and this card took forever to make as I seem to have spent a fair amount of time just staring at everything and wondering what the devil I was going to make. In the end I used about 5 different patterns (the papers were double sided), the 2 ribbons, 1 button, the chipboard owl and my extra was some of the new Stackies from Fat Freddies Craft Shed.
These are fab A4 sheets with funky flowers on them that you cut out and layer up as you please. I'm very fortunate in that Nikky who designed these is a mate and she brought a whole load of them round for me to play with. I LOVES them! They come in packs of 6 sheets and retail at £3.99. There are loads of flowers on each sheet. Yum yum.


I'm not sure who the papers are by or the chipboard either I'm afraid
The stackies are from Fat Freddie's Craft Shed
The stamp is a studio g one I think.

I love this card! You've done such a great job with the stash. I sat and looked, then rummaged through the boxes and finally remembered which papers those were - they are Berry Sweet by K&Co. The chipboard owl is from Bubbly Funk, they'e in a pack of two different sizes and you get a few of each - really really cute
