Time for more Cooking It Up With Katie!

Happy Thursday!
It's time for a new challenge over at my challenge blog Cooking It Up With Katie

The recipe for this challenge is:
1. An image of something that's been cooked or can be cooked;
2. Use some buttons;
3. Add a little something inside. This could be a decorated message mat, a pocket for a gift card or anything else you come up with.

Of course even though it's my own challenge I still couldn't just "make a card" I had to find more challenges to go with it! LOL

Lord Have Mercy gave me the sketch
Crazy Amigo wanted Buttons and Knots
Cupcake Crafts wanted Buttons and Stitching
TCP Tuesday wanted to see Buttons too
Whimsy Stamps wanted you to Get Punchy
365 Cards Day 227 wanted to see things "In Motion" and I hope the steam from the pie counts here.
and both Crazy 4 Challenges and Play Along Monday wanted to see Thankful/Thank You on your project.

The papers are from the Crafty Stack by DCWV. I love the cardstock weight of these papers and the textured feel. The pie image is clip art from The Mama Bear Kitchen set from Digi Scrap Kits. I printed them out 3 times and cut and layered them and added some extra ink around the edges.
The border punch is Apron Lace and the "steam" from the pie is a punched out piece from a border punch I've had for years. The wooden buttons are tied with grey twine and the sentiment is from 7 Gypsies.

The inside is more dp and another image from the same clip art set. This time I printed the Mama Bear directly onto the mat and then added another cut out version popped up for dimension.

Doesn't the pie look yummy?

This challenge would be perfect for those of you who love Magnolia stamps and who've got the new Yummy In Your Tummy collection!
So I'd love to see your creations over at Cooking It Up With Katie
