My 'Not So' Secret Recipe!

I was asked if I'd set the Fat Book Challenge on Craftswap Forum for this fortnight, so I decided we would have a recipe this time...but no...not a cookery one...a crafty one!
This is it....

Ingredients...
3 different Colours (not shades of)
2 Brads
Something shiny
A handmade embellishment ( made by yourself)
and
1 word of text

Method
Mix together and display for all to see


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have used a brown (1 colour) crushed velvet effect backing paper from Funky Fairy's, a green (2nd colour) and brown ribbon with a metal slider (something shiny)...a pink (3rd colour) tag with the word 'Hugs' on it (1 word of text) and attached it with a brad (1 brad). Then my handmade embellishment is the flower...which I've made using the 'Build a Flower' stamp set from Funky Fairy's. Each petal and the centre are separate so you can make them up as you wish. I decided on the pointy petal and stamped it several times on white fabric netting. I've then inked over them with an Adirondack ink pad in Lettuce and cut them out...stuck the petals in two layers on the back of a centre and poked a BIG Dovecraft Brad (2nd Brad) through and added a few pink gems to balance the colours.
Voila...it's ready!!! Perfecto
