Challenge #8

Lori's Kitchen Shower Invitation
As some of you know, our daughter Lori lost everything (except their jammies) in a house fire in February.  God certainly has blessed them through all of this and Thursday they move into a beautiful 5 bedroom home.  (they have adopted 4 children and are in the process of adopting 4 more)
Since she has to completely furnish a house I am having a Kitchen Shower for her on the 26th of April.
As I had time this week, I have worked on her invitation. 
Lori's colors are red, green and cream, so this plaid was perfect. She also will be decorating her kitchen in a retro theme.   I am asking everyone attending the shower to bring one of their favorite recipes and at least one ingredient to make it.  I will have a drawing for a door prize using the recipes.  I liked the addition of my Mom's Roll recipe for more interest.  I
 still have to design the inside of the card yet, but I have almost everything cut out that is on the front of the card. 
Below are the products I used to create this card.  You can purchase them at
Spellbinders Labels one - 2 sizes
Spellbinders Long Scalloped Rectangles
Graphic 45 paper
Spellbinders Ribbon Banners
The challenge for this week is the following:
You can make 3 cards this week. 
 The winner will be chosen by a Random Drawing.
A badge will be sent to the winner and Terri at Joan's Gardens will be be sending a prize to the winner.
Here is what you need to do for this week's challenge!
  • Use a plaid, check or striped paper -
  • Put a border around an image
  • Use any color
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens
