A Gingerbread Baby

Well, I shouldn't be doing this now, I mean posting something on a Saturday morning when I got loads of other things to do, but I just finished this card, and really wanted to upload it, so I thought a quick one won't take long he he :)

So, this is another Christmas Card I done this week, using again one of my lovely Stamp Fairy stamps and this one was also one of the Freebie Friday stamps. There's a new one this week, don't forget to go get it before it goes in the store.

I'm so happy today, the sun is out again and I could take a nice picture to show all the shine and glitter on my card. I coloured stamp with my promarkers and then added some 3D paint that I had in one of my drawers for the icing on the gingerbread boy. I really loved how it turned out.
The papers were recycled from an old wedding invitation, but I added the stamped stars on it myself. This is the lovely sketch I followed.
and used this photo for my inspiration as well.

I made my card with these challenges in mind..
Pear Tree Designs 28 - THE SKETCH
Aly's Sunday 30 - ALY'S FAVOURITE THINGS (gingerbreads)
Everybody Art Challenge 119 - GINGERBREAD TIME
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge 43 - THE INSPIRATIONAL PHOTO
The Stamp Man 11 - TAKE ANY 3 COLOURS (for my red, yellow and gold)
IDIC Challenge 31 - SURPRISE ME
2 Sisters Challenge 16 - SPARKLY CHRISTMAS

Thank you for looking today. ... now I'm off to the post-office and then to do some housework.

Big hugs
