Margarita Lime Cupcakes

Hey there,

Today, I decided to do something different. Last night I was browsing through all the challenges and decided I'd try the Flourished What's Cooking Challenge.

The challenge is to make a stamped summer recipe card. I have never done a recipe card since all my recipes are in a 3 ring binder. I had a few challenges assembling the card, but I think it turned out just right.

For My Card: I used a lime stamp and DS paper I purchased at a local rubber stamp store. I colored the image with my copics. After coloring the limes, I added crystal effects. I also used SU Certainly Celery, Whisper White card stock and the Round Tab punch. To complete the card, I added 4 lime green rhinestones I found in my stash.

For the Recipe: If anyone loves Lime Margaritas, you have to try the Cupcakes. It's so refreshing and perfect for the summer. I got the recipe from The Hostess With the Mostess website. Here's the link for the full recipe. Hope you enjoy it!

Well, it's time to start my day. My DH keeps coming in asking me when I'll be done. Have a great day!
