How to pamper a Pampered Chef?

Let everyone else do everything! Here's a birthday card for a my SIL's sister who's birthday is this weekend. She's an awesome wife, mom and a Pampered Chef consultant. I saw this Whipper Snapper stamp and just thought to myself this is the perfect stamp for her birthday card and I think I'm right!

And I'm really liking the Prismacolor pencils and gamsol technique, still practicing, but feeling more and more comfortable with it. :) Click on the image to zoom in on the coloring:

And still loving embossing my stamped images:
