1-2-3 It's a Recipe!!

Happy Friday friends!!  It's time to cook up a 1-2-3 Recipe Challenge over at Guylou's Inimitability hosted by my dear friend and over-the-top talented teamie, Kim!  And what a scrummy-licious creation and challenge did she whip up for you today!!  To check out Kim's amazing project and grab some inspiration, you can hop on over to her blog by clicking here

So here are the ingredients for Kim's awesome challenge:
1 ribbon or lace
2 decorative papers
3 or more pieces of bling...rhinestones, metal charm, etc

For my card I decided to use Leah at the Cocktail Party.  She's had a hard day gardening, but now it's time to mingle with her friends with a Cosmo (or two) and chillax at the summer party on the beach.  Well, at least in my mind that's what she's all dolled up for ;)  I took a plain piece of Close to My Heart chipboard and colored it in the Copics I used for her dress to accent the awesome sentiment by TLC and, of course, I couldn't just stop at 3 pieces of bling ;)

If you come and play along with your yummy creation, you have the chance to win a $5 gift certificate from Guylou's Inimitability Store and be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challengeYou will have until July 28th, 10:00 pm (EST or click here to find out the corresponding time where you are) to enter!  What will you cook up today?!
