Gingerbread fun

Arianne has blessed us with a beautiful sketch this week at Sunday Sketch and Stamp.  Sketch #43 will run for three weeks this time because of the Christmas holiday.   Here is her sketch:

I chose to have the sketch on the inside of my card this week.  I wanted something a little different this week.  I used Gingerbread Tilda and went a little simple on the rest of the card.  I used a gate fold card then folded down the top of the "gates" to reveal the inside, kind of like a tuxedo.  I used my Scor-pal to make nice crisp folds.

Here is what the card looks like when you open it up.

hair:  E41, E43, E44
skin:  E00, E21
clothes and basket:  E30, E31, E33, E44
buttons and hearts:  E29, E39

Thanks for stopping by!

This is just stunning! I love the way you folded the corners down to reveal part of your challenge card. The dp's are gorgeous and really lend themselves well to your Tilda. I always love flowers on a card, so no problem there - a beautiful arrangement!
