A Couple of Recipe Cards...

I just wanted to share a couple of 6 x 6 Recipe Cards. I am making oodles of these right now. I am in quit a few recipe swaps right now on 2Peas. I am planning on giving handmade recipe books and aprons this year for Christmas. So, this is the start of the hundreds of recipe cards I'll be making. =0)

For the first one, it's pretty basic. The paper is from K & Co., cardstock is the Paper Studio, the letters were cut with my Cricut and the jewels are from my stash.

The second one...Cardstock is the Paper Studio, DP ??? (I've had it for years), the image ??? (I can't remember, but if you know, please tell me!! =0) And it was colored with colored pencils.


I would like to enter the 2nd card into the following challenges:
