Gingerbread Girl with Cocoa

Hello, everybody!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - cardsbyepie - thank you for joining me!

I'm back again today with another winter holiday card!  Does anyone else have a soft spot for gingerbread cookies?  I just can't help myself - they are so cute!  This adorable image is from Bugaboo Digi Stamps called Girl Ginger Cocoa.  I coloured her with my markers, fussy-cut, and then adhered her with foam tape to a die-cut stitched label.

The patterned papers are from Forever in Time Holiday Trendz.  I did some faux stitching along the brown strip.  The "sweet wishes" sentiment is from Sugar Pea Designs, and I finished off the card with a few brown snowflake sequins.

My card design was inspired by Catch the Bug - Stella Says Sketch 718:

The Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is on now, so I am linking up there!

I've also been playing along with Beccy's Place - Month of Holiday Cards. It's an Alphabet Challenge, and today is Day 8 - "G" so I went with Gingerbread!

That's a really cute image Kitty, love her crooked smile. You did a fantastic job on the colouring, great combination of colours too. The addition of the faux stitching on the strip of brown card is fabulous. Well done!
