Mom's Recipe

Today's challenge at 365 Cards was to follow a card recipe:
5x5 card (solid colored card stock)
4x4 patterned paper
1 shape (must be solid color)
3 jewels
alpha stickers
I just now realized that I broke a rule--my flower is not a solid color--oops! Oh, well, close enough, right? ;)

I'm happy with the way this turned out. I was able to use some old scraps with my new Thickers (thanks to Amy's enabling). And I'm sure my mom won't mind that I changed the recipe just a bit!

Paper: Purely Pomegranate, SU dp
Accessories: flowers (Prima), brad (Oriental Trading Co.), rhinestones (Me & My Big Ideas), chipboard letters (Thickers Jewelry Box), corner rounder punch
