Thrill of the Grill

Did you have a great weekend? Did you get a chance to cook out on your grill any? That is really one of my favorite things about summer (although I have to admit, I've been know to cook out any time of the year, including in the snow!)
The challenge this week at Karen's Doodles US team is to use embossing (wet or dry). I used this fabulous new image, the Thrill of the Grill. I embossed my "first place ribbon" with the Stars cuttlebug folder. I love how my DP looks like a picnic blanket.
Keeping with a manly theme, I added a stamped and cut out pocket on the inside of the card, to tuck one of my favorite picnic recipes. Maybe you will want to try our challenge and my recipe (it really is yummy! - just cut the broccoli really tiny with a food processor).
