What's Cookin' Good Lookin'?

Hi Everyone

We've had a couple of snowy days here in Colorado - and whilst it looks beautiful, it is not the kind of weather that I enjoy going out in.  So yesterday I 'hunkered down' in my craftroom to play and this is what I came up with.

This image is from a store called  Lacy Sunshine, by the very talented artist Heather Valentin - her images are adorable, how come I've only just discovered her?????  This image is called 'Chef Lola' she is one of the retiring digis (only $1.00) and she is coloured completely with my ProMarkers.  I used the print and cut feature on my Cameo to cut her out and make the offset on the card base as well.  I found this cupcake brad in my stash and knew it would be perfect for that little corner.

I made this into an easel card, so that it could just stand up on its own and the full sentiment could be seen,  here is a look at a view from the side.

Here is a list of everything I used:

'Chef Lola' - Lacy Sunshine
Black cardstock - American Crafts
Pink Swiss Dots cardstock - Bazzil
Black/Silver Glitter Paper - DCWV
Sentiment - computer generated
Brad and gems - from my stash
ProMarkers - Letraset

This is what the card looks like when it is standing.

Here are the challenges I am entering my card in.
