How many sleeps 'til Christmas?

Hi everyone!! This is Christmas card #8... I'm getting there..slowly but surely!
This little gingerbread stamp set is from Waltzingmouse Stamps. This set is called Half Baked. There are quite a few images in this set, so you can make a gingerbread girl or boy and it even has different clothing for each! Super cute. I definitely will be using it again for this year's Christmas cards. This card is my submssion to Taylored Expressions sketch challenge #79.

I started off with my "go to" favorite CS lately - Soft Suede from SU for the card base. This DP is from Cosmo Cricket and I inked the edges with some Tea Dye distress ink to give it a little aged look. I colored the image with my Lyra pencils and then stitched around the edges. I used my Marvy Snowflake punch on the reverse side of this paper and then added some Diamond Dust to make it look like ice. I cut the sentiment out with my circle punch and matted it with the Soft Suede too. I finished with a little gingham ribbon and there you have it. Pull her out of the oven - she's DONE! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Oh, and the answer is 122!

Stamp - Waltzingmouse Stamps; Lyra Pencils; CS - SU Soft Suede & Very Vanilla; DP - Cosmo Cricket, Punches - Marvy Snowflake, Circles; Ribbon
