CCC2 Entry

I deliberately over how to do this card several times, as the theme at Susie and Vikki's Christmas Card Challenge 2 is gingerbread. Well I don't have a gingerbread stamp of any kind and was unprepared to buy one.

Then Lori smartly requested Prairie Fairy to create one. Well Prairie Fairy created not one but two digi images and I thought I was set. As I was too impatient to wait and get the images from Roberta myself as I was on a roll yesterday and wanted to complete my card challenges I googled gingerbread and found this image. Once I found the picture I liked I then had to decide how I was going to make it.
I should probably do a tutorial on this as most of it was done with punches. Anyone sincerely interested in the details please let me know and I will think about doing a tutorial as it would be my first online one.
Paper: Soft Suede, Whisper White, Garden Green, Real Red, Crushed Curry, Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery and Welcome Neighbour DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: white gel pen, Real Red marker, Crystal Effects, sponge, 5 petal flower punch - EK Success, small heart punch - Marvy Uchida, something goo border punch - Martha Stewart, 1/8" circle hand punch - EK Success, 1/4" circle hand punch, Modern Label punch, Double Rectangle punch, Full Heart punch, Jumbo Snowflake punch, Corner Rounder - all SU, metallic rub ons, Distress EF - SU

Really cool! I love the thought and creativity that went into this! I bet a lot of people would love a tut, we might as well get as much use as possible from all the punches and gadgets that we collect over the years!
