It may seem that I'm a bit late in the month (again) for the Recipe of the Month club. But I've been "working" on this for a while - at least in my head.
All the other recipes I've done have suggested the stamps and direction I needed to go - but this one. CALICO BEANS was hard! In my mind "calico" is for quilts and I toyed with sewing ideas. In the end I found this great Basic Grey paper that looked "calico" like and went for a very simple card. The ladybug came about because there are small ladybugs scattered on the paper.
Stamps: PaperTrey Ink LITTLE LADY
Paper: Basic Grey JUNEBUG, black cardstock
Ink: VersaMagic Aquatic Splash & Red Magic; Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: K&Company flowers, mini black rhinestones
I also added a library pocket on the back for the original recipe. Here mine is with my mom's handwritten recipe safely tucked away.
