Recipe Somethings Challenge

Happy Friday!

We've got a brand new challenge for your over on Stamp Something today! It's a little bit different too, it's a recipe somethings challenge. You can make a creation for a food recipe or maybe make some decorative recipe cards, or maybe even something for a recipe for that perfect day. This challenge is open to your interpretation of "Recipe." Have fun! Our sponsor this week is JessicaLynn Original and the candy prize for one lucky participant is a $25.00 gift certificate!!

This is my interpretation for this challenge, a 6x6 recipe card for Lemon Snowball Cookies. Now, I have to be honest here and say that I found this recipe online and have never made these cookies. I hope they're good, they sounded like it!

I started with a base of Bashful Blue cardstock and layered on white cardstock which has been embossed with the Snowflakes folder and the CB. I used a piece of striped grosgrain ribbon to hide the seam where the two white pieces meet.

I printed the recipe on white cardstock and mounted that to another blue piece. The final step to completing this recipe was to add this cute Charlie with Snowballs image from Whiff of Joy. He's just perfect for a snowball cookie recipe!

Charlie was colored with Copic markers and I added some glitter glue and dazzling diamond dust for added bling. He has been adhered with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll take a look at all the Design Team samples and give this recipe challenge a try! Have a great weekend, happy stamping! :)
