Voila Valentine

This week's OCC Challenge - Crazy for Hearts - is to create a card using two hearts or more. I watched Ratatouille with my son on Saturday night. I love that movie... The culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau, always puts me in mind of the SU "Voila" Chef. I love him too! I knew just what I would do for my OCCC card... so I got to work tonight on it. The base of the card is Rose Red. I used a strip of Raspberry Tart DSP and bordered it to the left with a strip of Regal Rose punched with Martha Stewart's lace border punch. The main image is stamped in black Stazon, and paper pieced with Basic Grey Bittersweet and SU Raspberry Tart DSP. My chef's platter is silver metallic paper from Creative Memories. I love it because it is so shiny. The hearts on the tray are from "Loads of Love". They are colored with re-inkers and an aqua painter and topped with Stardust Stickles. I used the MS lace punch again to make a "doily" to line the tray. My chef's buttons are black brads from Karen Foster Desgin, Inc. The sentiment is from MFT's Hearts Galore. It is framed with Hodgepodge Hardware and finished off with some Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon. I pierced the top and bottom right corners to add some texture. Voila!
