pepparkaka boy

Today at Sunday Sketch and Stamp we have an awesome sketch to follow, here is the sketch from Erin

And here is my interuptation.  Pepparkaka is the Finnish word for Gingerbread.  I can remember my grandmother making the most delicious gingerbread at Christmas time.  She had a special cookie cutter that she always used, a small tin heart.  She was from Finland and was an amazing cook and baker.  I have her recipe that she used from her old cookbook and I'm going to make her delicious cookies this year at Christmas.  This stamp reminds me so much of her and her cookies.  She passed away 6 years ago and I still miss her dearly.  So this one is for you grandma!
Designer paper is from Cosmo Cricket.  The ribbon is from my stash. Most of the embellishments is from JoAnn's except the cream colored roses, they are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I colored my image with copics, I'll add which ones I used later on.
Other challenges: 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Gorgeous card!! We have the same word for pepparkaka here in Sweden, but then again they are neighbouring countries...
