Recipe Card for a birthday

A dear family friend celebrated a milestone birthday, well sort of (LOL). His family planned him a surprise party for his 59th birthday (because for 60 he would be expecting one right?) and the theme was food/recipes, since he loves to cook. Each guest was asked to bring a recipe to be included in a cookbook they were compiling for him.

Here is what I came up with. The front of the card had the ingredient list and simple ribbon with a button embellishment, the back had the instructions for preparing the dish.


The accompanying birthday card.

More flowers

More flowers I made over the holidays. These flowers I made for my mom. She wanted them as toppers for some watering can themed gifts she gave the ladies in her office.  They were so much fun to make. I used mostly old Chatterbox pattern paper from my stash, I cut flowers shapes with my Cricut in graduated sizes, then I sprayed them with glimmer mist in varying shades and crumbled them up.  I love the shimmer and the texture of these flowers. I used rhinestone brads from Oriental Trading for the centers.
