Small break from Halloween crafting..

So I didn't quite finish the card set for my boyfriend's sister, but I did get something done for WCMD! I made this card for a challenge at Betsy Veldman's blog. The challenge was to take a non-holiday card from Card Creations Vol. 8 & make a holiday card based on that design. I decided to use this card by Renee Morris:
and here is what I came up with:


I kept the card pretty similar. I was inspired by the text background & the three elements (trees). To make mine, I used some inked paper from October Afternoon's "Very Merry" collection as a background. Then I added some lace, chipboard & cutout Gingerbread men & Mini Market stickers for the sentiment. The finishing touch was the obligatory bling for the cookie's buttons. :)

P.S. Don't worry, I still have lots more Halloween stuff to share this month before really getting into the holiday projects!
