Wanna Look Like This?

Hi Just a quick post today.  I made this card for a friend who has just started using Chia Seeds. It's his birthday and I've ordered him a recipe book for using Chia Seeds which hasn't arrived yet, so I made him some Chia cookies in the meantime and made the book cover into a tag for the cookies.  Whilst I know that Chia seeds are more for endurance than building muscles I thought the pictures were fun and his kids are having a circus birthday party next month and it has been suggested he go as a Strongman!

Anyway here it is:

And the inside looks like this:

I was really happy with the way the skin turned out! I followed a tutorial from one of the blogs I follow: Annika's Another Messy Crafter. Thanks Annika the tutorial was great!

And here are the cookies:

I started with inspiration from the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge for colour (I added grey) and used the Card Patterns Sketch as a starting point. Also entering this into Kenny K Krafty Girlz Challenge of Anything Goes as the inside image is Kenny K! And it's for Crafty Ann's Raise a smile challenge.
