This week's challenge is a recipe for them. They asked that I use 2 DPs, 3 different embellishments, and something that I would never think to use on my creation. This was tough for me. I pretty much had my card done and then realized I couldn't put my finger on anything that would fit on the card. On Labor Day weekend I went to Newburyport, Ma with my sisters and daughter. We were poking around in the litle gift shops and I usually buy some candles there every year. I picked up some wonderful smelling soybean candle beads thinking I would try some for home and then realized maybe I could use these on my card. If you look at the wreath you will see green half beads on it. The scent is Earthly Embrace and they are a fairly strong smell. So I used Crystal Effects and glued them on, now when you hold the card it has a nature smell that goes perfect with the theme of the card. It has been a week now and it hasn't hurt the card and still smells wonderful. So that is what I used as my something that I have never used on a card! I think this was a great idea for a recipe and I can't wait to see what everyone else uses on their creations!
