Holiday Card 8 - G for Gingerbread

Hi, everyone!  I'm back again today with another holiday card.  Inspiration for my holiday cards has come from the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place - she is having her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards ChallengeDay 8 is "G" - I went with Gingerbread.  (For an update on my husband's health, please see my earlier post here.)

The vintage gingerbread image is from Gecko Galz 'Tis the Season Digital Collage Sheet.  The smaller gingerbread men and gingerbread word are from Beccy's Place Gingerbread set.  I printed the gingies on brown cardstock, fussy-cut, and used a white paint marker to simulate icing.  The jingle bells are from Gecko Galz Happy Holidays Collage Sheet, and the stamped sentiment (wishes) is from Clearly Besotted.  The patterned papers are from Basic Grey Aspen Frost 6x6" paper pad, and I layered them with a die-cut doily from my stash.

I would also like to support the following challenges:

This card has a wonderful vintage feel to it Kitty, I love the old gingerbread image. I also like the way you've embellished with the fussy cut cookies down the side. The lace doily and little collection of bells is a nice way to finish the design. Well done!
