Can I haf a kookie, plez?

A smart cookie that will even correct my spelling for me? :) Can you tell that I am talking about one of the new stamp sets that SU! unveiled in their newly released Occasions Mini Catalog? Indeed, one of the many sets that I HAD to preorder from this catalog was the One Smart Cookie set which has some really cute sentiments including "you take the cake" which I used on this card. If you want to see the other sets they released click HERE. But I feel I must warn you... you will want everything! :)

Some quickie notes: Image was stamped in Black StazOn on watercolor paper and then colored with an Aqua Painter and Watercolor Wonder Crayons. A white gel pen was used to add a highlight to the balloon. Edges were sponged with Always Artichoke and a semi-circle was cut with the slot punch before layering the image on Brocade Blue and Chocolate Chip. Paper piercing was added and a white gel pen was used to add stitches (can't really see most of it in the pic). A little piece of red gingham ribbon finished off the focal image.

For the background layer a piece of Always Artichoke Designer paper was layered on Chocolate Chip. An accent piece of Mellow Moss was stamped with a sentiment, paper pierced and sponged before being adhered to the same piece. To finish it off a piece of Chocolate Chip ribbon was knotted around the layer before affixing to a Close to Cocoa card base.
