CCT04~Technique Gingerbread House

This card I made today took some handiwork.  I've not ever made a sunburst/starburst card before with paper strips.  I'm going to enter it in the technique challenge at: Christmas Card Throwdown     I'm kind of impressed how it turned out.  I had to google sunburst to see what I should do and then realized I only needed to cut a few rectangles into triangles (sort of)  lol  any ways being I'm not grand with a ruler or such I went to work, and then I layered the two brown pieces on top of red paper.  I then embossed some snowflakes and stamped my gingerbread house. 
 I used my watercolor pencils and some fun pearl paint for the roof.
    It is not to fancy, but for my first time with this technique,

 I'm happy with it.  

I also wanted to share a few pictures of this squirrel diving in for some corn.  He got himself a bit of a snow bath.   I think he poses for pictures now.   
Thank you so much for visiting me today.  It would be awesome if you would sign up to to follow my blog.   I'm always looking to add new members to my blog family.  It's so much fun knowing other people appreciate your cards.  
Keep Smiling 😊 Keep Stamping
