What's Cooking?

Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!!

Here is a card I created for this week's Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge, "Cooking Up Some Love", which was to create a project with a cooking, kitchen, food etc type theme!!

I was SO excited to be able to ink up one of the newest a la modes, What's Cooking from My Favorite Things! I LOVE the entire line of a la modes...I wish I was that skinny!!

I stamped this sweetie in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers. All the patterned paper on my card is Paper Girl from The Girls Paperie, and I paper pieced the mixing bowl and part of her apron with the same patterns.

The layout is pretty much last week's sketch from The Sweet Stop, SSS81, although I flipped it and moved the sentiment panel.

I sewed each layer on my sewing machine, and created the border with the Die-Namics Open Scallop Border Die. I think this may be my go-to Die-Namic...it always looks good on a card! I added three black brads (they were actually some Brocade Blue Brads that I colored with a black marker...I do that alot...it's a great way to use up all of the random colored brads in my stash!) and decided against adding a ribbon.

Thanks SO much for stopping by! I will be adding this cutie to my Etsy Store if anyone is interested!!
