52 {C}CT March Pick-A-Previous Colour Challenge

It's our final challenge for the month and it also happens to be our fifth week. That means it's time for a Pick-A-Previous theme.

For her final stint as hostess, Patricia wants us to play with a Previous Colour Combo. It can be from this year or from any of our past challenges. Just go through our Color Combos Archive and take your pick.

I went way back in the annals history to September 2012. It seems like a life time ago. I picked this combo for 2 reasons:

1. I couldn't say NO to those yummy gingerbread men; and
2. I won Top Honours for my project with this colour combo.

Back then I never imagined that one day I'd be on the team with these super talented ladies. I remember squealing down the telephone to my husband with the news. He was my BIGGEST fan then ... and still is.

Anyways, enough gushing. Here is my creation for 2014.

I'm using all Waltzing Mouse stamps for this card. The greeting is from
Say It Loud- Winter Holiday. I stamped Christmas with VersaColor Scarlet
and Yummy Wishes with Memento Rich Cocoa.   

The basket and gingerbread men are from WMS Bountiful Basket Additions.
I coloured with Graph It markers and tied some red and white twine. There's
also a solitary red bling... can you spot it? For cutting and layering I used
SB Circle and Scalloped Circle dies. I embossed the white circle with the
Swiss Dots folder ans inked the edge with TH Vintage Photo.

I stamped random stars from the A Cottage Christmas set with VersaColor
Cocoa. Christmas isn't complete without stars ... or gingerbread men. I inked
the edges very lightly with TH Barn Door. 

The sentiment is also from the A Cottage Christmas set, stamped with
Memento Rich Cocoa.
