52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - Color Challenge #9

Hello friends! Well here it is Saturday already and time for another 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Challenge.  This week Mynnette has come up with the great color combo above.  Can you just smell the cookies in the photo? Here is my card to inspire you this week:
Hmmm... can you guess what about the photo and colors inspired me?  I LOVE gingerbread cookies to look at (they are so cute!), smell and especially to eat!!  That with a mug of coffee or cocoa and Life is Good!
I used a fun new stamp set called Scentsational Season - named that way because you can use scented embossing powders with this set in the scents of Sugar and Spice (what I used - wish you could smell it via blog :o)) and Peppermint Stick.  Oh yum!!  Gotta be careful not to eat the card - lol.  This stamp set also comes with a coordinating Sizzlit Framelits that I used to cut out the gingerbread men, the mug and the steam - called Holiday Collection Framelits.  These are just so much fun to use!  The DSP along the edge of the card is also from the Holiday Mini and is one of the great patterns in the Festival of Prints Designer Series Stack (48 sheets total in 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 size).  I used the Houndstooth embossing folder for the textured background.  The sparkly buttons on the gingerbread men are the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling details glitter glue.  I added some pearls to the pattern on the mug (can you see them?).  The sentiment is from the More Merry Messages set.  I layered the modern lable punched sentiment on top of a large oval punched shape. 
Ok.. so enough about my card.  I can't wait to see what you come up with this week using Red,Brown and White or Cream.  Don't forget to pop into the blogs of the other 52CCT DT members and see their wonderful creations.  Leave them a note when you visit - we all love to get mail ;o)  Til next time...Hugs and Happy Crafting!
