Thank you Chef George!

This is a thank you card for George, who made my birthday cake this year! And boy was it YUMMY! He just loves to cook, so I say, "have at it", I'll eat all the samples you want to dish out. {he-he}

Ya know, I hardly ever pull this stamp set out but I really do like it. This guy is SO much fun to color. This set is from Stampin Up and it's called Voila! I stamped Mr. Cheffy on some SU Kraft CS and then again onto white CS. I colored the top half of the image on the white CS with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and cut it out. I then paper pieced the colored image onto the image I stamped earlier on SU Kraft. The patterned paper is from DCWV Garden Party and I paper pieced his pants with a coordinating piece of patterned paper from the same collection. I stitched around the edge of the matted image and tied some brown ribbon from Martha Stewart around the card base and through the slot I made in the image with my SU slot punch. I added a little shading at his feet and some highlights around the image directly on the Kraft piece to make the image POP! Lastly, using my Micron pen, I wrote George on his jacket to personalize the card a bit and "Voila," it's a masterpiece!! Have a GREAT day!
