Christmas in July
This week's Teapot Tuesday Challenge is Christmas in July -- create a card feturing a gingerbread man. I didn't have any good images, but luckily fellow SCSer Leigh, who runs Happileigh Scrappin, offered up this cute image for challenge participants.
The image is colored with pencils and OMS. The layout is this week's Card Positioning System sketch (CPS228). I added a scalloped edge and ribbon to the panel on the left of the cookie, and also did a little piercing in each corner of the main image. (Papers are from an old Hobby Lobby Christmas pad.)
I'm so proud of myself for being able to locate all my holiday supplies. I found an aluminum candy cane (from Michael's several Christmases ago) and added red and green gems to it, because this card is also for Victorine Originals Challenge #13 to add bling, and that's about as blingy as I get.
