Layers and layers

I don't like gingerbread. In theory it should be great: brown sugar, ginger, butter...good stuff. But it just never tastes as good as it should. If I make gingerbread men shaped cookies, I use sugar cookie dough. What I do love is this Tim Holtz gingerbread man die. I knew he would work out great on a layered card for the current Jingle Belles challenge. And happily, Merry Monday's challenge is to make a card featuring a gingerbread man. I recently found CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge, a challenge void waiting to be filled! This card is covered ENTIRELY with patterned paper!  I used Seize the Sketch #19 for the layout. All of the papers are Pink Paislee.
Here's my card:
