Celebrate


Kerry's blog challenge this week is : Eat it! (Are you singing Michael Jackson's Beat It now? I am) The card must have some sort of food on it.
I immediately thought of Chef Pierre from Viola. This guy is so fun! You can dress him up any which way and he never complains either :).
I paper pieced his jacket with Bella Rosa DSP, watercolored his pants with Kiwi Kiss and added a little shadowing with Bordering Blue Watercolor.
His neck kerchief and sleeve cuff are raised, as is the cupcake. The candle says "Celebrate." Since I am listing this on my Etsy shop, I didn't want to add any other type of saying, so the buyer can use it for whatever type of Celebration.
Check out Kerry's blog if you want to play along!
