A Recipe file

Hello everyone, can you believe it, I haven’t posted anything in two weeks!
I’m sorry, but I have not been home all week.
I went with my dad every day from Monday to Friday to help him in the Health Shop.
I had no time for blogging, but earned enough money to buy my first copics!
I would like to show you a recipe file I made for our old babysitter’s bridle shower.

I took an old file and made a big card or little scrapbook page to put inside the cover.

I used a lovely Whiff of Joy stamp called “Willow’s hot chicken soup” and it just so happened to be that our babysitter loves chickens! 
I colored her with the following Promarkers:
Terracotta and Henna - for her hair 
Blush - for her skin 
Sky Blue and Cyan - for her top
Ruby and Berry Red - for her apron 
Appel and Meadow Green - for her pants 
Terracotta and Spice - for her shoes 
Gold - for the pot of Chicken soup 
Pastel Yellow - for the cloth in her hand 
Cool Grey 1 - for the steam and for around the stamp 

I wrote “Resepte” in Afrikaans which means Recipes in English.
I cut out four corners  as well as the title with my Silhouette cutter. 
I stuck a piece of red lace threaded with a little white ribbon  at the bottom of the title.

These are embellishments cut out of cardboard, then I glazed it with “Royal Coat Dimensional Magic”
On the Side of the file I made a little strip which also says “Resepte” and I took another Whiff of Joy stamp called “Willow with Cookies” and cut out the cookies the girl was holding and stuck it on the strip.

Here is a picture of the front of the file.
I would also like to take part in the following challenges with this creation:
