Recipe card, Maggie and a Wedding......(WHAT?!)

At 365 Cards today, it's recipe day. Here is the recipe:
5x5 card (solid colored card stock - may be smooth or textured)
4x4 patterned paper (you may alter the edges if you'd like)
1 shape (circle, square, star, heart, etc.) - must be solid color
3 jewels
alpha stickers

Well, when I saw "1 shape", I knew what I wanted to use. I purchased these puzzle piece cards about 2 years ago and I've never used them. So, I took one piece out, glittered it up and attached it to the center of my card. This challenge may "look" simple, but it really was a challenge not to add more "stuff". So, here is my card..........

I'm getting a shadow in my pic because I only have one studio light now. (The other one is broken - see my last post). I cut the scalloped square using the Cricut and the Mini Monograms cartridge. Anyhoo...........Maggie is back this weekend!!!! YEA!!!! I don't normally get to see Mags twice in the same month, but my mom is getting married this weekend, so Maggie is coming for the wedding. My mom divorced some time ago and believe it or not she met up again with her very first love. They had not seen each other in 53 YEARS!! As soon as they layed eyes on each other, it was love all over again. So, tomorrow is the wedding and we are all very excited and happy for them. So, I may not get to post tomorrow, but I'll be back on Sunday for sure. Thanks for stopping by!
