Barbecue Time!

A card today to thank friends for hosting a barbecue last Saturday.

For the background I used a Creative Expressions 'Dotted Matrix PinPoint' embossing folder.  The barbecue was made from snippets of card with dies from the Sue Wilson 'King of the Grill' set and layered on a Memory Box 'Stitched Hexagon' die. I added some red ink to the yellow flames to make them look more realistic. The matted hexagon was attached with foam tape to add dimension.

I am joining in the following challenges:
