I just had to join with another project, did a card this time in case my 3D collage didn't qualify.

Such a great challenge. So grateful that I had the chance to enter although I didn't have one of your beautiful images to work with

I had enormous fun planning a card to use all the recipe ingredients. But I've decided that starting something the night before is a bad idea - before work this morning I couldn't find anything that I KNEW was on my desk from last night.
