Gingerbread Love


May Day has arrived and what a beautiful day it is going to be!  Our challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round is a recipe of 3 buttons, gingerbread men/women, and ribbon..  I've had this image colored for a year or two and was going to touch it up but afraid I'd mess it up......LOL  I THINK I got this stamp from Bell's'N Whistles but am not sure since I don't really keep track of where I got them, just the artist.

Oops, my buttons are not showing up under the snowflakes but you should be able to see them in this photo.  See those little green buttons and the other dimensions along with a sneak peek at the inside.

Gingerbread Love stamp by Elisabeth Bell
Stickles
Paper Doily
MS Snowflake Punch
Sno-Tex
Colored with Copics
2 Gingerbread cookies cut from K & Company DP.. My mid-month card will have the Gingerbread DP from which I cut these two gingerbread characters.

Be sure to stop by the CCAYR Challenge Blog and see all those wonderful and inspirational creations by the fantastic team.  We look forward to seeing your card for this challenge.  You have until May 30 to post your entry.

Hi Carol! OMG, I had never seen this sweet EB image before. It´s so beautifully colored! And I must confess: I would NEVER bite into such a cute gingerbread couple *LOL*. Fab card - and I´m also excited about your "May Flower Power" card! It´s gorgeous! Hugs Renata
Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I really appreciate your kind words.

This is beautiful! But I don't think I would be as happy as the little gingerbreadmen look if I was going to be eaten! The image is beautifully colored, so I'm glad you decided to leave it alone. And a fun touch with the snowflakes ON top of the buttons. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.

This is superb, Carol! Love that image and the way you used the buttons to add dimension to the snowflakes. I'm doing Christmas, too (so proud of myself for being ahead of the game this year!), and will have one posted tomorrow.
