Gingerbread Christmas House

Hello and I hope you are having a nice day!  It is officially summer, and we have been having a nice time around here.  We have walked on new trails, went geocaching, caught up on dentist visits and overall enjoyed the more relaxed pace of summer.

On that note, let's switch gears to a Christmas card!  I am still attempting to get the hang of coloring with alcohol markers, and I was able to blend some colors in my small collection to try to get some good, fun colors for this gingerbread house.  

I also added loose glitter and glossy accents to different details which I think looks cute on this type of image.

Supplies:  Gina K Designs Holiday Cheer stamps, Studio G sentiment, Memento ink, Versafine Ink.  Spectrum Noir and Bic alcohol markers, Recollections glitter, Glossy accents, Crate Paper Peppermint 6x6 paper pad, DieNamics Pierced Square Dies

I would love to participate in the following challenges:
SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge - Patterned Paper
ModSquad Challenge - All that Glitters
SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge - Add Some Shimmer
