Light My Fire

     It's Friday and time for the next weekly challenge at QKR Stampede.  Our theme is always "Anything Goes" and we love having you play along with us.

     For my card today, I used the QKR Stampede image, "Book of Matches" and this card has a double meaning - I'm sending it to a friend of mine and she's going to give it to her Hubby on their anniversary in early August.  He's the BBQ king of the neighborhood and still cooks over charcoal.  He says gas BBQs are for sissies.  lol

     While I don't do a lot of cooking over the home BBQ, I've done my share of camping vacations where all the cooking was done over a campfire so I'm intimately familiar with lighting those kinds of fires!

     I colored with ProMarkers and pencils, then cut the image with a stitched die from Cheery Lynn.  I found scraps of dp and used them behind the image.  The sentiment was printed and cut with a smaller Cheery Lynn die from that set, then adhered just at the bottom of the image.

     The only embellishment is the row of tiny pearls.  I think that design made a delightfully fun and CAS masculine card.

Jim's in total agreement with this guy on the gas grills. We've never had one and I'm sure never will. It's wood or charcoal all the way... and matches!
This is a wonderful card for that very reason. Love the card Connie and know the guy will too.
