House Mouse Challenge - #12 - a Recipe

My second posting from Germany. The most difficult part of this is working on a strange computer with programmes I'm not used to. Unfortunately the photographs are not brilliant -they are somewhat blurred.
This weeks' House Mouse challenge is a recipe - ribbon, 2 buttons, felt and a scalloped edge. The main problem I had with this was finding felt. I had to search the local town - there is only one small craft shop which doesn't have a fantastic amount of card making materials - however I did manage to find some felt, which I cut and used as the base of the flowers.
I made a cross over card and scalloped the triangular edges. I added flowers to either corner and used buttons tied with ribbon as the centres. The image is coloured with watercolours.
