House Mouse Challenge DT Finalist Entry #1

Click HERE for the Whimsy Change of Seasons Blog Hop
Runs through 10/28

I was thrilled to be chosen as one of the eleven finalists in the House Mouse Challenge Design Team call. The finalists were given a challenge this week to determine who is selected. We were to create two projects one being simple and the other "over the top". Fun challenge! I am sharing my creations with you in two posts as I have numerous photos to add. This is my "over the top" creation. It's a tri-fold pocket card with recipes.
