Card for Ben

I made this today for a pal for her grandson's 18th.  Ben is training as a chef in London, and is rarely parted from his Ipad. 

I created the backing paper in MCS using a couple of images of signature dishes from the place he is training at, and also one where he has done some work experience.  Printed on Conqueror paper to give it a sheen.

I then found an image of a chef's hat (hope he wears a white one!), which I distressed around the edges,  and also an image of an Ipad, to which I added computer generated greeting.  Both images were mounted on Conqueror card and black satin finish card.

Because I didn't know whether he wears chef's "whites" or the chef black and white trousers etc, I included a strip of black and white checked card as a faux ribbon.  All mounted on an A5 Navy blue card.

It wasn't quite what I had in mind for his card, as originally wanted to do something with a card in the shape of a chef's hat, and with a sort of cartoon chef - but it just wouldn't come together - so hope he likes this one, and appreciates the "personalised" backing paper.  (I shall have to explain to his gran - in case he doesn't pick up on the nuance!
