Progressive challenge with Flourishes

This weekend Flourishes hosted a progressive challenge.  I played along with it and had a lot of fun, and wound up creating something fresh and interesting and different than my normal style, too, which I enjoyed.  Here you go:

At Christmas I often bake cookies, then package them up all pretty and give them as gifts to colleagues or neighbours.  I'm not sure if I'll do that this year, as I'm cutting back on baking with an eye to losing some weight (sigh!) but figure eventually I'll break down and bake, and when I do I'll have this pretty card to go with the treats.

I've used a newly released set by Flourishes called Fresh Baked.  The picture was stamped in Tim Holz black distress ink, and coloured with Copics, and then I added sparkly stickles in two different blue colours.  The sentiment was stamped in Onyx Black Versafine, with some colour carefully added with Copics, and decorated with some rhinestones.  

The other day I was at a stamping class and noticed that at least half the people there (including me couldn't make bows easily.  For myself, I knew it was because my beloved Bow Easy was at home, LOL!  I sure do depend on it!  I used it here for the lovely double bow added on the top.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Flourishes Progressive Challenge
Crafty Card Makers - more than one punch/die cut
Forever Friends - Use ribbon or twine
The Pink Elephant Challenge - punches and dies
Come and get it challenges - flourishes and swirls
