I Really Did Try - Double Trouble Challenge #17

This is my Double Trouble Challenge #17 using the "3-2-1 Anytime Recipe" with ingredients of 3 Embellishments, 2 Colors and 1 Sentiment, or more, and the Special Topping at ColorMyHeart Color Dare "Bold & Bright" using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #295, and it also seemed very similar, maybe out of the box, but a good match up with Try Stamping on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #388 with optional "Celebrate".   

One of my Grandma's favorite cookie recipes at Christmas time was Peanut Butter with Chocolate Chips.  We always left a plate for Santa, and they were gone the next morning so they might have been his favorite too.  For my focal point I had the perfect stamp set from Little Acres Creations...masked the Dear Santa and plate of cookies, added the Santa note, colored with variety of Copic Sketch Brushes, fussy-cut the frame, layered with red frame and foam and added three embellishments and sentiment.  Background paper was chosen for the peppermint look along with another panel of bold red and zip strip added at bottom of card.

Nicely layered with the peppermint striped background, and I really like the cookies theme, Sue!

Love your card, Sue. I'm sure a lot of us can relate to the sentiment, too. Thanks for sharing at Color My Heart.

You ALWAYS nail the sketches, spot on. Glad I'm not the only one trying to explain my misbehavior to Santa this year!
