Christmas Cookies- Sketch challenge SOUS

Hello fellow crafters..
I'm so psyched its Friday for many reasons and being its sketch reveal is one of them.. This weeks sketch was designed by our very own Leah and I loved her sketch.. I wanted to put my Imagine to good use, plus use one of the Christmas themed cartridges that I've hoardered..LOL

So, without further a-do, here is my take on this weeks sketch:

The prints and die cuts are all printed and cut with my Cricut Imagine printer and die cutter..

How about a few close ups:
Mrs.Claus is so cute..
 I added some white liquid pearl drops to accent her bun, sleeves and neck ruffles. Inked the edges  of her with brushed corduroy distress ink..

The Title "Christmas" is cut from the Christmas essentials cartridge and "Cookie" is cut from the "From My Kitchen" cartridge.  I inked the edges of the cookie to make it looked baked..LOL  and added some liquid pearl drops to add some detail..
I attached it to the layout with foam tape to give some pop.. 

and then my gingerbread men, plus my plate of chocolate chip cookies.. The plate of cookies was edited from Mr.Claus's die cut by separating the cuts.  I added lots of doodles with a white marker..
