Cards For David...week 3

I can't believe there are only 3 more weeks till my brothers 50th birthday. It has been a fun challenge to send a card and gift every week for 50 weeks. I appreciated all the ideas I got from all of you. The idea for a "grill" card came from Denise. I looked around and found a couple of cards done with just punches. I love how my card came out.

Don't you love the cards I used for inspiration?! The one to the right is by Dawn Olchefske and the other one sadly I can't find the site again.(that will teach me to write it on the picture so I know who to give credit to)

On my card I used:

Basic Gray, Basic Black, Real Red & Sahara Sand Cardstocks from Stampin Up
The cloud background and paper used for the grass is from the Welcome Neighbors retired paper pack from Stampin Up

I computer generated the saying, silver brads(unknown), stampin dimensionals, mini-glue dots, and the "blue plastic" swirls are from Queen & Co. bold sequins set

Punches used for gril are all from Stampin Up and are as follows:
1/4" circle, 1/2" circle, 13/4" circle, ornament, word window and modern label(in the inspiration cards they used the big shot scribble swirls for the "smoke")
I also used my new grass die from Die-namics of My Favorite Stamps.

Now to just put together a package with some grilling rubs and sauces and week 3 is done. :0)

As always I wish you time to be creative but most of all time to stamp!

Till my next post...
