If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG142 so we can check out your beautiful work! 
I started with Jen Shults' DS37 for the layout of my card and then cut out the circles with Spellbinders dies and layered the paper over some Choice Buttercream cardstock.  I stamped this cute little chef from Bon Appetit in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored him with Copic Markers.  I used the Ribbon Trio Spellbinders for the sentiment and ran some twill tape through it and tied a bow.

I hope you'll play along this week!  Thanks for stopping by -
