I just love my card for today's color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. I knew I wanted to use the "Now You're Cookin' Stamp" and I decided to create an apron with it. Here are the colors you are to use for today:

My apron card:

I colored the stamp image with Stampin' Write Markers and stamped the image side-by-side. Make sure you color the image both times. I adorned both edges of the cardstock piece with 2 border pieces made with the new Ribbon Border Punch. Just tuck them both underneath the cardstock piece.

I punched one extra strip and cut out 3 little flowers from the center of the strip. I added a Pearl Jewel in the center of each flower and also on the teacups. Let me know what you think of my little apron and come join us today. I love to see all the different ideas different stampers come up with using the same colors. It's so interesting!

If you would like a pattern of the apron, click HERE for a copy. It is a PDF pattern loaded in Google Docs.
