Open! Open! Open!

It is a "This and That" blog hop with Artistic Outpost and I chose The Baker and Windows and Doors to play along! Be sure to visit the entire team for more fabulous inspiration!.
Tracy, Gerrie, Kate, and Lisa
You have about a week left to join in the monthly "Show Us Your AO Art" challenge, so hope you are inspired by all of us to share your AO inky greatness!
I just love this little Baker and I don't know if I told you or not, but my Grandson in Portland is in the process of opening up his own little "Food Cart" and that was the inspiration behind my card.
All images were stamped in Black Archival, inked with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and colored with Stampin Up markers.  The background Brick Texture Fade was inked over in Fired Brick (of course) and a little Vintage Photo and then I applied Black Archival directly to the embossing folder to set in the grout! I always give a quick spray of matte sealer to all my inked images.
Thank you so much for visiting today and I hope you have enjoyed your visit!

Hi Terry!! That's pretty cool news about your grandson opening up his own food cart in Portland!!:) That's exciting and I bet delicious, too ;) :) This card is just awesome with its rustic brick background and that darling baker girl!!
