What's cookin'?

How about a card? I actually made this one a while ago and have been hoarding it - just like I would yummy chocolate!

Quickie notes - 'cause it is late at night and I'm tired after installing my new Verizon DSL high speed internet (yay!). Images were stamped on Georgia Pacific white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copic markers. They were then punched out with a 1 3/8" square punch and mounted on an Old Olive cardstock layer with dimensionals. For the next layer I randomly stamped the cookie with Close to Cocoa Classic ink. I then added a bit of texture with a stamp from the SU! Itty Bitty Backgrounds set.

To finish some twill ribbon was knotted around the layered cardstock vertically and then two scrap pieces were folded in half and adhered along the bottom edge. After which a brad was placed over each piece as an accent. Oh, and a sentiment was stamped in Close to Cocoa ink along the bottom. I'm really loving the layout of this card... hmm... methinks you may see it again in the near future. :)

Stamps: Made with Love (Paper Pretties), Itty Bitty Backgrounds (SU!). Paper: Almost Amethyst, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, Georgia Pacific white. Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers (yikes, I lost my list for this card!), Clear Copic Spica pen, Close to Cocoa Classic. Other: Twill ribbon (Taylored Expressions), silver brads, dimensionals, sponge, 1 3/8" square punch, mat pack, paper piercer.
