Gingerbread Snowflake

Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday!
Hope all is well?!...

Things are starting to get back to normal here with my kids back in school. Granted I home school them, there still is a schedule we follow. ;)

Anyhow, I'm swinging in today to share a card for a 'new to me' challenge. I actually just found out about it today! When I was visiting some crafty blogs I came across it...I'm talking about the current Be Inspired Challenge from Laurel. :)

When I saw the inspiration photo, my mind went straight to the gingerbread cookies. The snowflakes to be exact. So I based my card off of that and the light color of blue. 

Nice and clean, right?!...I played with some distress oxide ink for my background and then added a die cut snowflake. Which I did one in dark brown for the 'cookie' and one in white for the 'icing'. I did also add some shimmer to my white but unfortunately I could not capture it on my photos. :( But trust me it's there. ;) I thought about a sentiment to put on and ended up deciding that I liked it blank. Was that a good idea?...I don't know. But I still think it's a nice card. 

That's all for me today, I'm off to doing some visiting and commenting! :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!
