I needed to make a card for my BIL’s 30th and today’s inspiration challenge was a perfect opportunity. I was inspired by the colors (grays with a little pop of red) and chef in this book. This card turned out exactly like I envisioned (shocker!) and I think this may just be my “go to” black birthday card!
To make this card, I cut out the gray cardstock and stamped the chef with his tray in the center. I used a template I had left over from this card (the shape of the template is pictured there as well). I put the center of the template in the center of the tray and sponged away. Then I colored and paperpieced the rest of the chef into place. The 30 was cut from my Cricut machine using the Storybook cartridge.
Paper: GP 110, SU DP, Going Grey, Basic Grey, Black, silver dp from Mike’s

PS: Sorry I've been away a lot this week. My kids have started their summer vacations and it was my last week as a part time worker. We spent all week visiting some of our favorite St. Louis spots! We had a blast!
