Christmas Birthday Recipe Card

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
I have been scrapbooking the whole weekend. 
I have 2 weeks left to finish 4 scrapbooks.  My daughter and I have been working really hard on these.  They are Christmas presents for her clogging teachers, and their Christmas  party is 2 weeks from now.
But after today, we are 3/4 done with them.  Yeah!!!
I did have to take a little break and participate in the all new
They have a challenge on Facebook that anyone can enter even if they don't have a blog.  I think that is wonderful.
Their theme for this challenge is Anything Goes!
I wanted to do something a little different for this challenge.
I decided to make a Birthday Card for an upcoming Christmas birthday.
But I wanted to add a new twist to it.
I added a tag with a recipe on it for Buttercream Icing.

My daughter has her own small business from home where she makes cakes, cupcakes, and cookies, Life Is Sweet Treats. So, I went with a cooking theme.

I used the All Dressed Up stamp Sweetie Pie.  Isn't she cute?!
I also used some digi papers from NitWit designs.
I also decided I needed some kitchen embellishments, which I didn't have any of.  So, I made some from scratch.  I made a wooden spoon, and oven mitt, and a rolling pin.  I added a little "flour" to the rolling pin, and a little to her cheek.
You can't really see it too well in the pictures, but it looks really good.

I added a tag with some ribbon and fibers on it for the recipe tag.
Lastly I added some flowers and a brad in the corner.

I had so much fun with this card!
All Dressed Up also has a fabulous Challenge Blog as well.
Their Design Team is absolutely fabulous! They have incredible projects.
