Gingerbread Man's First Christmas

Soooo, this is just a quick post this evening to share a card I made over the weekend and want to enter into this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge, along with the Come and Get It Challenge, where the colour challenge blog is Blue and the Totally Gorjuss challenge, where the theme is Anything Goes - with glitter:

The card was made using this week's sketch:

I also used a gingerbread man digi stamp from Pink Gem Designs, which I coloured using distress inks for the body of the gingerbread man and the hat.  The holly was coloured using my new watercolour pencils, as were his cheeks.

The backing papers are a mixture of Lili of the Valley Frosty Christmas and Krafty Christmas pads, Nigel May's A-May-Zing Christmas Crafting CD Rom and Birds Cards free snowflake papers.

To finish, the ribbon, twine and jingle bells were from my stash and I printed the sentiment.  I also glittered the pom pom and trim of the hat (although you can't really tell from the picture)

I hope you like this.  I made this for a friend and she seemed to really like it.

Happy Crafting!
