Bug A Boo Stamps Gingerbread Girl

Happy Saturday!  
It's challenge day at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug, today's challenge is "Emboss It".  

I used the cute gingerbread cookie from the December Digi Club collection for my card.  She's colored with Copic markers E41, E42, E43, B21, B23, R22, R24, R27, Goooo, C00, C1.  

I tried something a little different with this Spellbinders die, I used a circle die inside the first die, left them together and embossed my frame with one of the Spellbinders impressions thingies.  It was an interesting affect, I like it.  The triangle shapes were a rectangle I cut from corner to corner with my paper trimmer after embossing with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The cardstock I used was Neenah Solar White and Kraft and I added some organdy ribbon and a bow. 

Challenges:
Pile It On - Brand Spankin' New - the stamp
Cupcake Craft Challenge - White is White 
City Crafter - Winter White 
Paper Crafting Journey - Let's Get Digital 
Kaboodle Doodles - Anything Goes 
Stamp Something - Use A Digi
