You are the Bacon to my Eggs...

Okay, I hate to admit it, but I am just LOVING this card.  So simple, yet perfect!  The phrase was #2 on my list of phrases I wanted to make a card from, and I thought, how in the world am I going to make bacon???  I mean, I don't have a Cricut cartridge with bacon on it, I am sure of that... so I made my own.  This is a 5.5" circle card, The outer solid blue ring has a 1/2" ring layered over white cardstock that is just inked with a sponge (trying to resemble a plate.. what do you think?) The eggs were cut from Just Becase Cards, the yolks are pop-dotted.  The bacon...  let's see if I can describe it.  I used a chocolate brown piece of card stock, and just made random wavy cuts.  I ran those pieces over my red ink pad to darken the color a bit, and  then glued it to a white piece of cardstock.  I then took my Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink pad, and ran over the the whole piece, to add the light brown inbetween the dark pieces.  The strips of bacon were then cut the same way I cut the brown cardstock (wavy), then I crimped the pieces of bacon so that they looked like bacon right out of the frying pan.  My hubby loves breakfast, and we haven't had real bacon since January (gotta love those New Year's resolutions), and this makes me want bacon, and NOT turkey bacon!  :o)  I nice BLT sounds so incredible right now, you have no idea!  Anyways!  This inside of the card is hand-written: "You are the Bacon to my Eggs." 

Thank you for looking!  It means a lot to me!
