Jimmy Buffett – License to Chill

Okay, still feeling silly!  And still thinking about Jimmy Buffett.  I think it’s because it summer time.  I know this song isn’t original to him, but on the License to Chill album he sings it with George Strait, Alan Jackson, Clint Black, Kenny Chesney and Toby Keith  – just a fun song to sing with and to your honey.

So that leads us in to this fun card.  I so wanted these stamps from My Favorite Things forever – they weren’t in stock so I kept checking and finally!  I needed them to send a card to a young friend of mine who is on her way to becoming an amazing chef.

This isn’t the card I made for her, but another idea I had.  I stamped some of the tools in a Gray Memento ink randomly on the background,  I didn’t want them to overwhelm the rest of the card since it’s fairly busy.

The rest of the elements were stamped in Simon Says Stamp Intense black, and I cut the blue striped circle using a stitched circle die cut.  I’m not sure where the background paper is from.  I colored everything with Copic markers, and used a white gel pen to add stripes to the bowls and dots to the chef’s scarves. I used foam tape to pop up all the elements. It’s an A2 size card.

Thanks for stopping by!
