A LITTLE BARBECUE ANYONE?

HAH!! Good morning all! This new stamp set from the Summer Mini cracks me up! It's called King of the Grill and is just such a fun image!!  This card I am sharing today is based on this week's sketch challenge at Stampin' Connection where my fellow team member Liz knocked our socks off with a fab sketch! If you are a demonstratror, get on over there and check it out and let's see what you can do with it!  I thought this might make a great Father's Day card, but well, I have not really decided yet, LOL! So, I left off the ribbon although it about killed me to do so, heehee!! I used the Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper, and my new Square Lattice embossing folder - love how it looks and it actually changes the texture of the card stock!  And, although it may be hard for you to tell, I used my Frost White Shimmerz paint on both the embossed card stock and the main image (click image for closer look).  Fun card to make and I am happy with how it turned out!  So, quick post today, I am getting ready for my Canvas class tonight and have a million things to do before the ladies arrive!  Thanks for stopping by, your comments ROCK!
