Some like it HOT!

This is  my third GDT card for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and the theme for this fortnights challenge is - For a Male.  Make sure you pop over the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog for more details and to check out the fabulous DT inspiration and great prizes.

My card is for one of the boys to give my husband, he loves to cook and we grow chili peppers in our green house so this image seemed ideal.

The papers are from Joanna Sheen's Royal Horticultural CD and the decoupage image is from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Food and Drink collection, I have used black card stock from my stash for the base.  I used some red corrugated card stock and some black string from my stash.  The sentiment is a LOTV stamp on a spellbinders ribbon banner die cut inked with distress inks.  The little chili pepper embellishments have been cut from the backing paper and glazed with 3D Crystal Lacquer.

You can just about see the decoupage layers in this photograph.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
