Christmas Treats

When I saw the decoupage sheets to match the Lucy Cromwell, At Christmas papers from Papermania (which I already had from the latest goody bag), I just had to have them as they feature images of home baked treats and hampers, both of which I make at Christmas as gifts for friends and family.  This tasty looking image had me itching to get into the kitchen and get baking!
 The papers are Papermania, At Christmas, as is the decoupage sheet, I shaped the decoupage layers slightly, and used glue gel, rather than foam pads so I could vary the height depending on how much the pieces had been shaped.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, I inked the edges of it, and of the edges of the papers with Barn Door Distress Ink.
I used a doily to add to the homespun look, and finished off with some baker's twine and red pearls.
