Milk And Cookies For Santa

I know you all must be sick of me by now, but here I am, yet again! LOL

I have another card for you, from my attempt to complete the The 12 Days of Christmas at Catch The Bug. This card is for Day 8, with the theme "Cookies and Milk." I struggled with this one a little at first because I don't have any Bugaboo Stamps images with cookies or milk. I did find this fun image though.... And then it came to me..... I'll make my own cookie! (Again, having to get creative and think outside the box! LOL)

I used the Sketch at Stamp With Fun. The image, from Bugaboo Stamps, is punched with a circle punch. I colored her with Promarkers and then sponged around her with brown ink. Then, I punched out brown circles and cut them down, placed them on the circles image, to make the it look like she's on a big cookie! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and I feel like it looks quite a bit like a cookie! The dark red ribbon is from my stash. I used gold glittered brads to add some sparkle, shine and bling. The papers are all scraps from my stash. I decided not to use an added sentiment, since the red DP has Merry Christmas written all over it.

The image/cookie is attached with foam mounting tape for dimension.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
