Gingerbread House

 Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog: Use Circles.  Our sponsor for this week is Meljen Designs and the winner will get to choose 4 of their adorable images.  How great is that?!
The Meljen's image that I got to use this week is this adorable Gingerbread House.  Their images are all so cute.  I love all the ones I have.  It was really fun to color and then to glitter.  Yep, I got a bit carried away with the glitter, but it's so sparkly and beautiful.  So, I started off with the idea to glitter the green gumdrops because gumdrops are glittery.  Then it just went on from there--it even carried over to the snowflake.  I just couldn't help it. : )
Remember that I said the challenge this week is to use circles?  Well, I had to stretch a bit on this one, but my card does contain circles: the lollipops and mint "wreath" in the image; the rhinestone on the snowflake and even the ends of some of the embossed snowflakes.  So how do you interpret this challenge?  I would love to see your take on it.  Hop over to the CSAYL blog, check out the other DT projects and play along.
