Sweet Treats = Holiday Cheer

I needed to get back on track with creating holiday cards throughout the year, which will make December a much more relaxing time!  Merry Monday's challenge this week was to create a card showcasing Christmas inspired food.  I decided to combine that with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, and here is the result. 

Now the question is whether hard candy is considered food?  If a piece of hard candy gets me from one meal to the next, then I say it's food.  I chose as my Christmas inspired food because it is sweet, it is pretty and it is festive! 

 In the past I have tried "filling jars" by masking to give that layered look inside the jar.  This time around I decided to layer using die cut images.  I think I like it better, but next time I might look to include an acrylic layer on top of this (and I have a piece nearby, I would have tried it today.

Loving the white on white.  Cheers!
