Baking Buddies

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a perky little kitchen-themed card I made especially for Darlene and Diane's "Kitchen is the Heart of the Home" Challenge, which is part of their big 2 Year BD Celebration. Look at the totally cute inspiration board they provided:

I received this fun Flapper Doodle - Flappers in the Kitchen stamp set a number of months ago in a prize.  It might have been originally sold by MFT, but is now discontinued.  This is the first time it's had ink between its toes. 

 I was inspired by the fun aprons with the bits of red gingham and the kitchen herbs in the mood board.  I kept the stamped image completely uncolored to let the other elements shine.

Supplies used include:
Flapper Doodle - Flappers in the Kitchen stamp set
Versafine Ink in Onyx Black
Clear embossing powder

Lawn Fawn - Large Stitched Rectangles die set
Sizzix - Circles, Scallop die set
M&C Boutique - Large Circle Frame die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Verve - Sprightly Sprigs die set
DCWV Stack - Foiled (silver cardstock)
Silver cording from my stash
Thank you for stopping by today and leaving your sweet comments!!! I have another card I made with these two flappers....a Christmas card. I'll be back later to share that one, too.
