Gingerbread Buttons

Hi everyone,

I had some lovely extra days off, we didn't do much as I still had my cold but is was nice to just be hanging around. I still did a little work, as I am falling a little bit behind after our holiday but I still got to sleep in and do a little crafting too.  But, today I'm back on my daily commute to work, coinciding with the new CCAYR Challenge for this month, the theme this time is "Use a Gingerbread image on your project, together with ribbon and at least 3 buttons". A little more complicated theme this month, but I am sure you will be able to create a project for it!

I had a little difficulty finding a ginger bread image in my stash, but in the end found one in a decoupage magazine, meant as part of a small gift tag. So I decided to use a tag on my card to fill out the front of the card a little more; I think it works but am curious to what you think.
