Challenge #10 at Cooking It Up!

Happy Wednesday!
It's time for another challenge over at my Cooking It Up With Katie card recipe blog.

This time the recipe is:
Home or Family theme
Punch something
Use a sticker

I used the following challenges:
For the banner:

Raise the Bar had an Older the Better theme and wanted old papers
Res Q wanted you to have an "Inventory Check Up" and use some things you've had for ages (I think the 7+ year old papers work)
Frosted Designs wanted Embossing
Just Us Girls had a Wildcard of making a Banner
Crafty Angels wanted Buttons
Jacksonbelle want Buttons, Bows or Brads
Little Red Wagon wanted Chipboard
Sweet Stampin wanted Scallops
Creatalicious wanted No Stamped or Digi images
Created By Hand wanted anything but a Square or Rectangle
Paper Minutes wanted Triangles

For the matching card:

Stamp Something had a theme of "Delightfully Delicious"
Polly Craft wanted "Things with Wings" and Tilda is an Angel so she definitely has wings.
Lord Have Mercy had a super simple sketch that worked perfectly for this set
Crafty Angels wanted Buttons
Jacksonbelle want Buttons, Bows or Brads
Sweet Stampin wanted Scallops
Creative Belli wanted Ribbons
Magnolia Lovers wanted Buttons or Bows or both

I really like using my paper crafts in my home and thought the idea of a "Home" banner would be a fun concept.

I used really old papers, they are Color by Design from 2001, but they went so well with the new Mary Engelbreit accents from Michaels $1 spot.
The chipboard letters were spray painted with Krylon, much quicker and even than painting by hand.
I used my trusty Threading Water punch by Fiskars and the border at the top is embossed too with the Swiss Dots folder.
The flowers are Prima and the brads in the center from Target.

On the card I used Baking Tilda and colored her with Copic's.

I carried on all the embellishments inside on to the message mat.

Here's a close up of Tilda and her Cookies!
I'd love to see your creations from this challenge over at Cooking It Up With Katie.
