B is for Blue Challenge for ABC

Good Morning!
Well today is the start of a brand new challenge at ABC Challenge Blog the theme is 'B is for Blue'. For this challenge we are being sponsored by Secret Crafter who are offering a fabulous prize of a set of digi images from their second Manga release.
I chose to create a recipe folder which I decorated with the gorgeous Magnolia stamps from The 'Yummy For Your Tummy' collection. I used a Martha Stewart puch to edge the top flap and die cut swirls using a Marianne D die. Finished with flowers from my stash and some faux stitching.
