Papertake Weekly challenge - Spots N Stripes

Good morning!! I hope you made it through your Monday without too much grief! :) With today being Tuesday, that means it's time for a new Papertake Weekly challenge. This time, Dawny challenged us to use spots and stripes, and it's being sponsored by the amazing Simon Says Stamp! Spots N Stripes....sounded like the perfect background for another Christmas card, and this one with adorable gingies!!! I LOVE cute gingerbread people! And I do mean I LOVE THEM! LOL!

This adorable pair is from Peachy Keen Stamps and they're colored with Copic markers. The DP are both digi, the striped paper is a Pink Petticoat download and I don't remember where I found the spots (sorry). I left this card VERY simple as I didn't want anything to distract from those cuties! I simply added a bow made with gorgeous lace ribbon from May Arts. Thanks for the link, Becca!! That's it for today! Be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly and take a look at the fabulous creations from the other designers. Then grab your paper and glue and play aong with us for a chance to win a wonderful prize from Simon Says Stamp! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon!
