You're Smokin' Hot!

Good morning peeps! I'd like to share a card I made for my hubby for our anniversary, which is this Saturday:

Here is the inside:

I've had this idea in my head since I first saw the Hot Spots Lg #2 die from Paper Smooches. The one I used here just screamed HIBACHI GRILL to me! LOL! The kabob and steak from the Alfresco set both fit on here perfectly, but I stamped, colored and fussy cut two kabobs for my card. (I may have to make another card using the steaks! Maybe a 4th of July card? Hmm.....!) I found and printed out that super cool flame clipart from the internet and stamped the sentiment at the top. I masked the grill image so that I only used the smoke and stamped that 3 times along the bottom of the panel, then used a grey marker to fill in some of the smoke. On the inside, I inked up the Happy Anniversary stamp with Cantaloupe then went over the bottom half of it with Tangelo, to sort of mimic the color of the flames. (So happy how that turned out!) Stamped the grill in the bottom corner and added a heart and I was done!

Don't ya just love it when an idea turns out sooooo much better than you planned? This, I think, is one of mine! (If I do say so myself! ☺) I'm also going to enter this card for the Paper Smooches Sparks DT call. Wish me luck!

Well, I'm off to go grocery shopping now. (Ugh!) Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic day!
