Lil' Gingerbread Cookie

Hi!  Welcome to my blog today!  It's time for another challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and our theme is "Christmas Cookies" - use some type of baking item on your project (sprinkles, baking cup,  etc).  We are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish this week!

I used some mini baking cups on my card with RF's "Gingerbread Baby", colored with Spectrum Noir markers.

I pinched the center of the baking cups and twisted them just a little, hoping to make the stripes look a little more swirled to look like lollipops.  But I think they turned out to look more like flowers, so we'll go with that! :o)   I twisted some green twine from The Twinery for the stems (or sucker sticks if we go with the lollipop idea).
These fuzzy covered buttons were in my button box and matched the green edge of the baking cups exactly!

I also looked through my stash of die cuts leftover from other projects, experiments, etc. and found these label cuts and one of the snowflakes.  The snowflakes and the white label are cut from white glitter cardstock.  The labels are Spellbinders dies and the snowflakes are from the Christmas solutions cartridge.   The sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkadoo, stamped with white ink and then heat embossed with crystal powder.  

There you have it!  This is a fun challenge that had me thinking a bit to use something new.  Just what a challenge is supposed to do, right?  So come on over and join the fun at Tuesday Throwdown!
