Gingerbread

I was playing with a set of Tim Holtz Christmas stamps when it struck me that kraft paper is about the same color as gingerbread, and a card idea was born.
For the larger kraft panel, I lightly penciled in a diagonal line corner to corner and used it as a guide
to create three lines of gingerbread men (not sure who makes that little stamp).  I stamped Tim's gingerbread man on another piece of craft, colored it with a little pencil, die cut, and mounted on white. I added a  tiny ribbon tab showing off a ribbon with a candy image, and used pop dots to attach it to the card. The sentiment runs vertically, so things are going every which way on this card.

The gingerman is entering these challenges:
