Challenge #3

Don't forget, the next challenge is on Thursday night @8. How many ways can you create a card or layout using these 4 recipe ingredients?
~ 3D foam
~something you have owned for less than 1 month
~themed around something you are grateful for... (you don't need to use the word grateful on your layout or card, just implied) Ex. I am grateful for our foundation and my husband, but didn't title my layout it.
