Gingerbread Wishes

Happy Friday.  Another simple Christmas card today using a digi I got from Bugaboo.  
I was inspired by the Grab and Go Challenge at Splitcoast this am.....grab something you bought and have been meaning to use.  This little image was just calling out to come to life.

I cut an oval mask using a Spellbinders oval die and sponged with Mowed Lawn Distress ink.  I then stamped over that with a background stamp then removed the mask so I could stamp the sentiment from Hero Arts.  I printed off the gingerbread man, then coloured him with Copic markers and cut it out.  
I added some Glossy Accents to the heart cheeks for dimension and sparkle to the candy cane with my Stella Wink pen and pop dotted it over the oval area.
Easy, right?

 Adding my card to these challenges:
