Chocolate Delight

Vintage/masculine is the theme of the current JustRite challenge.  In between visits to my husband who has been in the hospital for 10 days battling post surgery infection; I've been working on this challenge.  It has provided a positive distraction from the worry.  He loves (don't we all) chocolate chip cookies; so I decided to create a cookie basket and added an accompanying card.  I made the card with a Happy Birthday sentiment; but any appropriate message could be used.  A stamp from the
Shabby Chic Labels 4 set was used to create the foldover basket tab.  Even though the stamp seems "feminine", I thought it worked well turned upside down for a masculine image.  What do you think?  The basket label was embossed on vellum,  outlined in a piece of burlap twine, then cut out by hand.
  Once the basket was finished, I spent a little time in the kitchen baking a batch of chocolate chip cookies.  Yum (yep, I ate one...okay two!)
