So, without further ado.....

Now, to my creation! A couple years back, my mom gave me a fabulous recipe for a Strawberry Salad -- it features a tasty salad with spinach, strawberries and toasted walnuts! The Vinaigrette is delish! (Not exactly low cal, but delish!) So, I made up a card to have handy for the next BBQ. I figure I can bring the salad, put the dressing in this decked out jar and have the recipe for the hostess! EDITED TO ADD: Looks like I'm going to need to remake this recipe card.. I forgot 1/2 c. Red Wine Vinegar to the recipe!!! So, if you want to give this recipe a try -- don't forget the vinegar! :-)

I also combined challenges to include the colors for the 100th Color Throwdown celebration! You can check out the challenge HERE. Trust me, you'll want to -- there are 30 some companies doling out prizes to help Color Throwdown celebrate! :-) (including Flourishes)

Now to the deets! This one was super duper easy peasy! I just printed my recipe off on Flourishes Classic White card stock, used a circle Nestabilities die to cut it out, matted it up on a scalloped Nesties shape and then again on a larger circle shape. The strawberries were colored using the Poppy Copic collection plus a mix of greens to try to capture the "certainly celery" shade in the color challenge (G82, YG11, G12), I added B000 and BG10 to serve as my hint of "baja breeze". Add some gingham ribbon and a button and... almost done! The jar was just decked out with some gingham ruffle and a button with twine. Voila!
