Sweet Birthday

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor this week is KennyK Stamps

I was given this fabulous image (Chef) from KennyK Stamps to work with, and here is the super fun card I created:
 To me, a chef theme always brings to mind a black and white color scheme.  And throwing red in there just makes it fabulous!  Unfortunately, I don't really have any black and white patterned papers, or red patterned paper either for that matter.  So, I set about to make my own with a text background stamp.  I think it works perfectly.  And yes, I know that this chef has a frying pan, which doesn't really go with "sweet", but maybe she's making crepes or something like that.  Yum!  To add some more fun to the card, I decided to make add a shaker element.  Here's what it looks like in action:
