All Around The World!

This weeks challenge is to create a recipe card celebrating our heritage or favorite culture. Our Design Team has been busy at work creating yummy recipe cards from a variety of cultures. Enjoy! 

This adorable recipe card was created by Ceal.  I received this cute paper from Julie at Scrapbook Store At Your Door, and knew right away I wanted to do an Italian recipe because of the cute little Italian chefs. The two chefs were originally at the bottom corner of the page but I cut them out and placed them where I needed them so I would not cover them up with my recipe.
This week we are celebrating our heritage and what better day (for me!) than Columbus Day to  celebrate with one of my favorite Italian dishes, Chicken Florentine.  I love spinach! Julie has added all sorts of new food-themed items to her store, under their own category so if you are looking for some food themed scrapbook items you will find lots of inspiration. One of the papers in her store is this really pretty green paper with spices and it reminded me so much of spinach!  I paired the paper with the pretty red and green flowers, brads and pearls.
This beautiful recipe card was created by Lorie. In talking to my grandpa, he tells me that way back our family is from Irish decendants, so that's what I'm celebrating today. The Irish flag consists of three equal size rectangles of green, white, and orange, and while my recipe page is 6x6 square, you get the drift. I wanted to keep this one fairly simple, but with my love for bling, of course I had to find a place for some. I used this really neat scroll template I found at my local craft store to trace the swirls, and I handstitched those with orange embroidery floss. Julie sent me some beautiful goodies to play with, like those pretty pearls, and primas from her online store Scrapbook Store At Your Door. Julie is carrying a whole new line of kitchen themed papers and embellishments for all your recipe card needs. Please be sure to check out all the amazing pretties she is offering. They are absolutely fabulous, and so much fun!

Please Play along and post a link to your creation in the comments section of this post. We would love to see what you have created! The start of every great recipe starts with a trip to the store, well recipe cards are the same! Take a trip to the
