This all-American condiment started out as a spicy, fermented fish sauce in Malaysia.
That version, known as kěchap, made its way first to Europe and then to the New World, where tomatoes eventually became the defining ingredient.
Elsewhere, ketchup retains an earlier identity. Traditional English ketchup, for example, is a pureed seasoning based on mushrooms, unripe walnuts, or oysters.

Paper Smooches - July 8-14 Designer Drafts challenge
A very simple card, letting the paper be my background. The sentiment is made with with 2 different stamp sets. The Happy Birthday is from CARDZ TV and the deer is from Paper Smooches, where I masked off the my and just used the deer.
I stamped the fawn out first, colored it in with distress stains and fussy cut it out, used a charcoal pencil around the edges of the card, smudged with my finger. Sprayed it with a fixative so the charcoal would not mess up the card or the fingers, when the recipient handles it.
