MAWTT #31 - a recipe challenge

Happy Thursday morning everyone! A big thank you to everyone who joined in with Sue's wonderful sketch challenge last week - we had some fabulous entries. This week it's my turn - Nicki - to host the challenge and I've decided not to give you a sketch but I have a recipe for you to use. I'd like to see the following items on your creations:

At least 3 eyelets
3 flowers
Some ribbon

You can use any sketch and colour combination, and make any kind of project you like as long as you incorporate these elements somewhere on your work. To got with my recipe I'm offering a lovely Search Press book as the prize this week - Polly Pinder's 'Eyelet Greeting Cards' - which is full of yummy ideas with step-by-step photos and loads of tips.

So come on, whether you use a Crop-a-dile or a good old-fashioned hammer with your eyelets, get setting and join the fun! Here are the cards created by the Design Team this week to give you some inspiration - the girls have done me proud and come up with some gorgeous cards...
