Catered Crop Recipe Challenge FTR3

Great art picks up where nature ends. 
       ~Marc Chagall



Congratulations once again to all the amazing cooks of the second Catered Crop Follow-the-Recipe challenge. You do not make picking a winner easy! I love all the different flavors of your delicious dishes – such a banquet!.

Talk about picking up where nature ended, Rachel Hope's Inspired Peony just blew us all away. Ah, and her card has so many fun ingredients for the rest of us to play with for the next challenge, FTR3. Rachel, be sure to e-mail me so I can send your Baker's Twine and winner's button.

So, catered crafters, your inspiration for today's challenge, FTR3, is Rachel's winning card and all the fun kraft paper, felt (oh, I'm drooling), Stickles, tiny pearls, and a digital stamp . . . so yummy! Here's her card and all the ingredients.



  • Paper – Kraft, Melon Berry, White, and Black
  • Stamps – Just Inklined Peony, Woodware USA Jane's Script
  • Inks – Printer, Copics, Memento Black, Blush Blossom
  • Tools – Sewing Machine, Small Scallop Edge Die, Martha Stewart Branch Punch,, Swiss Doss Cuttlebug Folder
  • Embellishments – Ribbon, Paper Flowers, Tiny Pearls, Felt,
  • Glitter – Stickles
  • Techniques – Sewing, Distressing

The rules are simple and they're provided in more detail at the Catered Crop Challenge Home Page. Simply use any of the ingredients or techniques in Rachel's recipe to make your project (scrapbook page, card, home decor, etc.). It helps us pick a winner if you list your recipe or tell us what ingredient you used from the sample recipe. Since our challenge is new and growing, I really do appreciate it if you link back to this page or include the "I Followed the Recipe" button on your blog (see the side bar to the right).

Yes, there's a prize! The winning entry gets an "I Baked it Best" button to put on their blog and will be the inspiration for the next challenge. It will also be permanently featured on the Catered Crop Challenge Home Page and the Catered Crop Facebook Fan Page. But, there's more: 16 tags (8 large and 8 small) from Melissa France's vintage Kitschy Kitchen line – perfect for a recipe challenge, don't you think?
