Make Mine a Double

Hi ya friends,
 I have a couple of cards to share with ya today. The first is for my Dad for Father's Day.
Here it is:
 My Dad is a big carnivore so I stacked up the grill with a steak, hot dog, and burger *Ü* I colored the images with Copics & then spread a little Glossy Accents on the meats to give them that juicy look! Yum!

Here's the innies with lots of room for a message:
I used this CAS sketch since I'm going to be mailing it to him, I hoped that keeping it CAS would help me stay away from my usual layers.

The next card uses a stamp set from the bat files!
Here it is:
 So if you've been stamping for a while you might recognize this is a "Who's that Girl" set from My Favorite Things. MFT doesn't carry this line anymore, but I just can't part with them... I don't play with them, but I can't part with them either... sigh...

Here are some deets & another peek:
 I colored the images with Copics. I didn't want a plain background so I used an embossing folder, that to me, looked like a basket weave pattern. I used the excess I trimmed to create the baskets. I inked the embossed paper with brown chalk ink & added them on. The strawberries and apples got a bit of glossy accents and the peaches got a teensy bit of flocking powder so they're a bit fuzzy! *Ü*
I stamped the sentiment on vellum & popped it up with a little clear foam.

I used this week's MFT sketch #232:
I almost didn't play along this week cuz I thought this was a hard sketch! But it kept bugging me so I decided to not over think it & just go with it. So I merged the square & flower element into a general one that is made up of the girl and the basket. I think I made it work *Ü*

Lots of challenges out there, so I thought I'd play along with these:
