Chef Linzy = Gilli Chef

Good Morning! Today I am posting a special card, one that has been "imagined" for several months now. Ever since this adorable Gilli stamp came out I knew I would have to buy it! She looks just like my daughter, Linzy, who just happens to be a chef!

This week she went to Detroit for a few days of extensive training for new menu items her restaurant will be serving. She works for a well-known chain of exclusive restaurants and makes the most amazing Italian food you've ever tasted! They pair it with a wonderful Chianti and the whole dining experience is always total enjoyment. We go there only as a special treat...it IS a little beyond our price-range, but always worth the "splurge"!

So I finally made this little "Congratulations" card for Linz to let her know how proud we are of her and to acknowledge all her hard work.
Linz may not like it but I can't resist putting a picture of her on here so you can see what I mean about the Gilli image being so perfect for her. You can't see it in the picture but she does have long blonde hair!

So a quick list of "ingredients" for my card:
Stamped image- Gilli Chef (from anary.com)
Stamped sentiment- Congratulations (from StampingScrapping.com)
Cardstock- from my stash
Flowers & stamped image on the inside- I need to do a little research to remember" where I got them!
The chef's whole white outfit is covered with Stickles!

And I AM entering this card in Anary's challenge at http://houseofgilli.blogspot.com/. The challenge is #12- "Anything Goes".
