Whisking You A Happy Day

I had so much fun making my card for this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Let's take a look. 

I love this little Gnome Chef. Okay, you've got me, I am very partial to Gnomes, period. (Help from the grammar police, please - do you use a period after you say period?)  I thought the sentiment would be cute if I made it look like a chalk board. I'm going for that café feel where they write the daily menu on a chalk board. Then instead of just adding the chef to the card, I wanted to make a cluster of him with his utensils.  So cute, right?  I added a bit of shimmer brush to the whisk and red liquid pearls to the heart.

Here is the sketch that inspired me. 

What does this sketch suggest to you? "Whisk" something up and add it to the challenge!  We love it when you play along!
