VMAA challenge 4 - Home Alone


So I was only going to do one VMAA challenge, but then I wasn't totally satisfied with my first card. So I decided to try it again for challenge 4 - which was to make a card that reminds you of your holidays as a kid. And since gingerbread cookies remind me of my childhood holidays (yum!), I evolved the first design by switching to the gingerbread man stamp (from the new Baking clear set). Oooo... yes - I liked this much better than the first card. Which is your favorite?

I like both cards, but this gingerbread man looks like he is sitting on a plate waiting to be eaten and I am hungry!
