Recipe Swap

I joined a Recipe Swap on Splitcoast Stampers. The swap was for a 6x6 recipe card with a South Beach Diet recipe. It was just about the time when I was re-committing to South Beach, so I decided to sum up. So this is what I came up with:

The red is 12x12 textured paper that I bought at Michael's and cut into (4) 6x6 squares. The black is also textured paper. I printed the recipe on white card stock. The "chop sticks" are just a toothpick cut in half. I adhered them using SU Crystal Effects. I found an Asian foam stamp set at Joann's and used that for the back ground and the one image on the recipe. I am really pleased with how this turned out. I have until February to turn this in, but I was inspired over the weekend and got them done. Now I just have to mail them. It was downright spring like today in central Indiana. I believe it was in the upper 60s! So nice!
