Wish Big - DTC Challenge #146 "SomeThing, AnyThing, EveryThing"

This is my Design Team project for Double Trouble #146 "SomeThing, AnyThing, EveryThing" (aka AG) with Twisted Sister's optional twist using one or more or combination of:  A. Food/Beverage, B. Checkered pattern, C. Insect. 

Double Dare offers additional chances when you combine your card with our other previous partners and my choices were ColorMyHeart Color Dare #563 "TicTacToe" and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #540.  

Twisted Sister's optional twist A. Food and/or Beverage... a hamburger die cut using a variety of cardstock colors. Also die cut a tag layered with Sapphire and adhered the hamburger using 3D thin foam tape for dimension. Die cut a bow and placed in hole of tag.  

My background papers were inspired with the colors of Labor Day (red, white and blue) and Twisted Sister's optional twist B. Checkers was one of the designs with the other two stars and stripes.  Thought Wish Big was a good sentiment for this Big hamburger and stamped on bottom r-h corner with Sapphire Ink.  

Optional Twist C. Insect... my thought was not to use an insect because I didn't want to spoil the deliciousness of the hamburger. But I found this adorable teeny weeny ant stamp and what is a picnic without an ant and better than annoying flies and bees.  So... a couple ants were stamped on the checkered tablecloth where they could be brushed off before they got to the hamburger. 

Ants favorite human food is sugar, so I distracted them from the hamburger and guided them to the inside of my card with a piece of watermelon, another favorite food for a picnic, and the ants happily enjoyed the picnic too.  

Please hop on over and join us at Double Trouble and check out the Design Teams inspiration, and then let us see what you create... hope to see you there.

Yep! Ants sure love to get in my sugar!! lol Nasty little buggers. But your card is simply darling on the inside with them. And I love the outside design and the great papers you used for the BG of that yummy burger.
