Simon Says Challenge~What are you known for

What a great challenge: Make a card/project about what you are known for;  and it really got me thinking.  I know I haven’t yet figured out my style of stamping, I do like kind of plain not a lot of embellishments.  I’m trying to grab onto more techniques and try other things but I always go back to “kind of plain” or CAS clean and simple as it’s called.  But what I am really known for is my Bread Baking abilities.  I bake artisan breads at home and they always get rave reviews.  I don’t have a stone oven but I do use an oven stone.  This very old retired stamp from Stampin Up came to my mind and I bought this set years ago because I liked to bake bread ever since I can remember.  Here is my entry, a slightly interactive card.  You can open the oven door and see the bread.  I did a bit of Tole on it to give the bread a puffy look. Everything is colored with copics.  And I had to use bakers twine as when I gift or sell my bread I wrap it in parchment paper and tie it up with bakers twine. DSC03130
