As some of you know, I do several swaps each month. Keeps me busy and out of trouble. Anyway, this month there is a new swap over at SSSD and its called Recipe card. When I first saw that I thought we were suppose to make a card with a recipe on it. No, no, no. Whew, but it would be a fun swap. Back to the Recipe card swap. The idea is to make a card using specific items, hence "recipe". Well, I read my "recipe" and promptly went off to make my card. A die cut, couple of flowers, three designer papers.

Here is my card. One swap finished. Just need a partner to send it to.

 Items used:
2 flowers in stamp form. actually its four + flowers
1 die cut, Nestabilities Labels 10
2 designer papers Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler (I think)

Now did I get everything?

Oooops, this is what you get when you don't read all the instructions, back to the drawing board.

When you leave something out of a recipe it doesn't usually turn out right. Well, I think my card turned out just right, even tho I left out a designer paper. This will now become a birthday card.
Oh, the stamp set used is SU Bordering on Romance. Love this set, just need to use it more.
I will post the "Recipe card" I do send out to my partner in another post.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to say "Hi"
