My swap...spoiler alert!!

German Phrase of the Day: Kocken macht Spass. = It's fun to cook. I like cooking...except when I'm too busy to actually make something good, then it's just another chore. I made pork tenderloin with berry sauce the other day for lunch, and it was YUMMY! Maybe I"ll post the recipe when I get more time. ;-)

I decided I needed to post one of my own creations! I made this hurriedly last week before going to the krankenhaus for a swap I'm in. The challenge was to create a flower from a non flower. So, use a different stamp set to create a flower, or something else. I chose to do ribbon, because I think it turns out pretty darn cool. At the time I wasn't overly thrilled with this card, but it's grown on me (like many things do!) It is a very bulky card, but it turns out cute!

Have a great day everyone!!

Supplies: (all supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Happy Everything, Linen background
