Summer Grillin

This is a fun card, that I will add a sentiment to later.  I think it would make a great guy birthday card, also a Fathers day card.  Unfortunately I no longer have my Father to give it to. 
The card measures 6 1/2 by 5 inches.  When I was looking through my paper and found this BBQ paper, I knew what I wanted to do because it would follow one of the sketches this week for RAQs Challenge on the Cricut message board.  The oven mit and spatula are from From my Kitchen cartridge.  I cut the spatula four times, once from silver foil like paper.  I stacked all the brown cut out together then cut the bottom part off the silver one and glue it on top.   The oven mit was also cut several times, and I added a thread loop when I was gluing them together.  I hung them bot using some colored cord.  The top blue strip was punch with swiss cheese punch and Cuttlebugged.
This shows the silver a little better and also the cuff on the oven mit.   The blue paper I used for the oven mit has some fuzzy dots on it. 
Here are the challenges I will be entering this card in

So Clever! Don't you just love it when things like that little bitty cut of silver for the spatula just works out perfectly and makes the card so special?!? I LOVE THAT!!!
