Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! It's been such a busy past few weeks I've only had time to think about what I would like to craft and not actually craft, lol. I thought I'd share a quick card I made today before all the holiday festivities begin!

I've been admiring this cute little gingerbread man and his home in the Create a Critter 2 handbook for quite a while now and thought it was time to finally bring them to life. :) 





I sort of went Stickles-crazy with this card... there are days when I am such a glitter girl! I used Christmas Red, Green, and Baby Blue to accent the gingerbread house, the gingerbread man, and the sentiment. The house was cut at 3.25 inches and the gingerbread man was cut at 2 inches. The 'Happy Holidays' sentiment is one I found in the $1 bin at Michael's a while back. I also distressed the edge of the background paper (which is from the Recollections Jolly Jamboree paper pack) with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut. 

Since there's so many Christmas challenges going on right now, I thought I'd enter this card into a few of them. My first time linking up to multiple challenges, woo hoo! :)
