Spoonful of Sweetness

Well its a good job this card was waiting to be posted because yesterday really was a hump day. I've used the sweet gingerbread boy from Pink Gem Designs along with Oh Boy download papers.
Janet suggested to use a texture card to print on, well I use quite a heavyweight linen card that I use to make the actual card and was surprised that my Epson printer quite happily printed on it unlike my previous printer who refused point blank to.
I then used the fab sketch from Friday Sketchers and in the hearts there's a tiny bit of green so I added a bit more green with the brads and ribbon so I can use the card for the Blue and Green challenge on A spoonful of Sugar.
I cut out the stars and heart off the scraps left over and the sentiment is again from Pink Gem Designs.
Well I've discovered another flaw in digi images, I almost made a card when I discovered that the images I had cut out were a slightly different size from each other. You couldn't tell by looking at them but when you tried to layering them it was pretty obvious. So it went in the bin and I decided since this was exactly how my day was going, I'll give up for the day.

    The sentiment is also from pink gem designs I guess?
