Gingerbread Kids

Good morning, everyone.  Here's a card I made for a progressive challenge that I like to take part in each month.  The images are Gingerbread Kids from Imagine That...digis by Kris.  The challenge is open all month so why not hop over and play along with me - then you'll get next month's image for free.

I decided to use the pre-coloured digis - perfect for a quick card.  All I did was fussy-cut the images and added Stickles around the boy's hat.  The embossing folder is Couture Creations Sugarplum Ball - I'm really using this one a lot - I love it.  I added some twine from American Crafts.  The glittery strip is actually ribbon that I found at Dollarama.  I used my Nellie's Multiframe Square to cut the fishtail in the ribbon.  And I finished it off with a little candy cane. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:
