Bon Apetite !

My Dad asked me to do a card for a guy he knows through work, I asked him what the guy liked so I could base a card around that, the only brief I got was "He`s a big bloke and he likes to cook " !! ( thanks Dad, really helpful ! ) so this is what I came up with.
I didn`t want to over embellish it as it`s for a male so just a couple of ribbbon tabs and a bit of a swirl to balance the card.
The image is from the American SU catalogue " Voila " - coloured with distress inks and marvey le plume pens and a tiny bit of diamond stickles around the candle flame!
The 50 is cut from cuttle bug die - Hippy Chick !
I find male cards very difficult to do as most of my stamps are quite girly and cute but this SU stamp set is a really good stand by and I`ve used it quite a lot.

Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xx
