Apart from that we will also have monthly celebrations :) so stay tuned !

 6. Last date to submit your cards will be 15th feb 2014 , by 11:55 PM IST.

The winner of this challenge will win 
Goodies from the Lulupu store.
So here is my take on this challenge : 

We were challenged by Nikita to work on this theme. 
I have to say i dont have any stamp set or dies that go with this theme , 
So i just went with the first sweet thing that i saw around the house! 
My inspiration was a pack of cookies that we had bought from Subway the day before , 
they were wrapped in a butter paper bag with the subway logo on it. 

to recreate the feel of the package i made a nice vellum bag ! 
I used a sizzix die to cut out the top of the bag to create a nice shape to it.
 The cookies are made with paper and distressed to give that biscuit color . 
I added some twine , a pearl heart, a miniature rose and some sequin to finish the look .
There are banners and paper lace underneath the cookies. 
I have used almost all the colors (Except Kraft) from the lovely palette nikita picked out for us. 
Since i dont have a related stamp i have hand written the sentiment .

So you see with this challenge you have a lot of possibility of taking inspiration from your kitchen
and work with your imagination ! But if you do have related stamps or stickers feel free to use them ! 
So do join the FUN !!!
Hugs
