A Balanced Diet - Cookies

One more project for my local club is a recipe exchange.  We put these on a 6 x 6 inch square.  This month's theme is "cookies".

I finally got to use this great decorative paper I bought when we first started this swap.  I used a white cardstock base and added a layer of deep pink with the edges sponged with brown.  I then used a square of my special paper, layered on dark brown cardstock, and also sponged the edges with brown.  I picked a new recipe that I just found that sounds awesom.  I printed it in brown on the deep pink cardstock and cut it out with a spellbinder die.  Once again I sponged the edges with brown and adhered it to the front right.

I sponged brown ink onto tan cardstock, then stamped the cookie in dark brown.  I cut these out and added them to the bottom left. 

On the top left I added a special sticker I had also purchased and patiently waited for just the right recipe to use it with.

I entered this card in the following challenges:
