50th card for a cook

I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted. What a bad, bad blogger I am. However, I haven't been idle, and have made lots of cards over the last few weeks, some of which I've actually remembered to photograph!
I was asked to make a card to be given to a lady who is a keen cook, and to accompany the card, I made a separate fancy invitation to the posh restaurant her friends are taking her to for her birthday present, so a cooking themed card seemed appropriate.
I used DCWV Nana's Kitchen papers to make this stepper card. I absolutely love the little metal knife, fork and spoon charm which I'll need to buy more of next time I'm at a craft show. The apron is made using an old Woodware clear stamp from a garden themed set. I paper-pieced the pocket and you may just about be able to make out the tiny fork and spoon in the pocket.

I am entering this card in to the following challenges:
Craft Creations Challenges: embossing and glitter
The Crafty Pad: anything but Christmas
