FCCB Challenge Rolling in Ribbon- Gingerbread man layout

Hello everyone- so glad you found the time to join us this week for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.  I know right now we are all so busy with Christmas less than 2 weeks away.  So sit down relax and check out this weeks challenge - Rolling in Ribbon
The challenge is to use ribbon somewhere on your project along with your Cricut cut. 
Today I would like to share with you how to glitz up some already cute paper for a layout.  
The paper I used for this project is the 
Recollections Sugar Plums Paper Stack from Michaels this year,
I thought this page was so cute but I wanted to do more with it.  

Here is the finished product.  
I used the gingerbread paper from the same stack.  I added red glitter rick rack from Michaels,  
I also added gingerbread ribbon which I cut at different lengths.  
I added snowflakes and Stickles 

To the corner I cut the Gingerbread corner from the new Cricut cart Paper Trimmings at 5 inches.  I added a bow sticker and PK stamps for faces, used white gel on the eyes and the frosting trim and  white snowflake confetti.  I then added  some little balls on tinsil (Michels)  to make it look like they are decorating.  
I hope this has inspired you to join us this week for the  for the FCCB ribbon challenge. 
 We would love to see what you make.
