Sugar and spice...

My holiday break has just started, so I'm hoping I'll be able to finally post some of the (quick) Christmas cards I've been creating recently. Here's the first one.

I loaded my new digital background stamp (Hero Arts - Holiday Jumble) into Word and placed the digital sentiment image (one of last year's freebies from Paulette's blog - she also has a number of freebies hidden in her store right now) on top and printed this on a piece of Bazzill kraft cardstock. I had already cut out the gingerbread men (an old freebie created by Beccy) last year, so all I had to do now was to mount the gingerbread men with foam tape onto my card together with some baker's twine (part of some blog candy I won). I rubbed the edges of the cream card blanc with an ink pad (Aged mahogany distress ink - Ranger's).

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Jingle Belles - Anything (Holiday) goes
CHNC - #103 Christmas birthday/Anything Christmas goes
Aud Sentiments - #70 Use any sentiment
