Bon Appetit!

Still no donkey foal, and I'm in panic mode every time the phone rings?

To take my mind of it, my friend came round this morning to craft, and I made this card

The wooden background was stamped on natural card and laid on a base. I then added some navy card with a MENU label added on the bottom. I die cut a cream circle, and drew an inner broken circle with a marker to make it look like a plate. I fussy cut a lobster and put it on the plate on 3D pads. I downloaded some clip art cutlery and stamped a pattern on the handles before grouping them together with a raffia bow. The finishing touch was the sentiment tag on the bow.

I am entering it in these challenges :
