House Mouse- no cookin' challenge

This week at House-Mouse and Friends, it's a No Cookin' Recipe Card Challenge.  I don't think it's any secret how much I love House Mouse and company, and I have been meaning to play along with the challenges for ages, but it always seems like I miss the deadline. This week, I had a few ideas for the challenge, and they were all birthday cards. September is a busy birthday month in my world, and here's one card down.

I also love cookbooks and have many. In fact, they have overflowed my cookbook cupboard and are on several shelves. I pulled this recipe from a book I picked up for $1. It's brand new, and decided to muck it up a bit using distress inks in Vintage Photo and Tea Dye. The recipe contributor's name was in the right corner, so I distressed it further by tearing the paper.

I stamped the image on Bristol paper with Momento ink and coloured with copics. I then cut it out and adhered it to the recipe with foam tape. It is layered on glassine paper and orange cardstock.

Wonder who is going to get this card?
