Brunches of Wishes

Hi there 🙂 This was an extremely fun – and challenging – card to make. My kid’s boyfriend was approaching, and when I asked for card ideas, I was told: “His favorite color is green, he likes to cook and eat, but his favorite is breakfast – he even has a tattoo of bacon and eggs. Oh, and he likes rainbows….not the arch kind…the prism kind.” This little speech was accompanied by an evil gleam in the eye, lol. Challenge accepted!!!!! First thing was to find some cute breakfast-y images, and I really scored at Terevela Design on Etsy!! I chose to use the Kawaii Breakfast set, because they were just too darn cute with their little faces! I picked out a few of the characters, then colored them up with my Copics and fussy cut them out. I’d been thinking about making him a shaker card before hearing the “requirement” list, but I was not deterred!! I brought out some of my Fimo, and made up some little breakfast shaker elements 🙂 I made the sun into the shaker element, and positioned everything on the green (of course) card base. The sentiment was printed on my computer, and leads into the inside of the card….

I love how this all came together, and was pleased to hear that he absolutely loved the card 🙂
