MM # 83 Stripes, Red, Chocolate & Stars or Hearts

This week's Merry Monday focuses us on the colors: Red, and Chocolate, with stripes, and either
 stars or hearts.
Chocolate means bring on the gingerbread man from PTI's Holiday Button Bits.

Isn't this the dreamiest cupboard? 
I love all things traditional, seasoned with a bit of kitsch, and always red and white.

Mr. Gingerbread Man is holding a peppermint candy Memory Box die cut. 
Banner includes hearts from PTI's Gingerbread Lane cut from red felt.
PTI tag sale die cut from Pure Poppy card stock.
Background paper is Webster's Pages: Silent Night. I thought the Birch trees look stripish.
There's a brown die cut snowflake from PTI, glittered with coarse glitter, behind the tag.
Layers make me happy. 

Dimension with foam dots, some Baker's twine, and red and white snowflake ribbon.
Play along through Sunday on the Always Playing with Paper website.
