Lovin' from the Oven

It's time for the Guest Designer challenge at My Favorite Things. This month it's a color challenge to use Raspberry, Lime Green, Aqua and Yellow is optional.  For my entry I decided to make a recipe card holder. It's a pink acrylic clothes pin which I picked up in the dollar section at Target. You can use to hold other things like samples at card swaps, make a bunch and use them as place cards on a table. It would be a nice hostess gift at a pot luck if you included the recipe for the dish you bring.
For this image there is a lot of paper piecing using Cosmo Cricket "DeLovely" paper.  The only parts that are colored with copics are the background, flesh and wooden spoon.  And even though the flesh is colored the arms are paper pieced too.  The inside of the bowl is covered with glossy accents.  There Liquid Pearls around her neck and an applique flower to dress it up a little. 

All the deets and the challenge are already covered so for now I'll just remind you that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Click the pink ribbon, it's free, fast and easy and will do some good for your karma.  If you have a blog why not add the ribbon to it.
