Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger-Snowing Gingerbread

OK, it's November 27th and I am seriously making an effort to create Christmas cards to mail out ON TIME Seriously??? Well, I am going to give it a try :o)

I love this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger and had a ton of ideas rolling around in my head .... why don't those transfer to paper in the same way, huh?
I was inspired by the pretty photo ~ the white icing on the (brown) gingerbread "snowflake"cookie, thus the snowflakes falling on the brown snow covered houses :o) You still have time to join in at

My card (click on the photo for more details) ~
I used Kraft card stock for the base and for the strip under the houses; the aqua blue is a textured paper from Zoophabet 2; and the white is from Georgia Pacific.
Stamp: Hero Arts 'Row of Houses'
Punches: Marvey's 'Snowflake' and Martha Stewart's 'Cornice' border punch
Embellishments: Prisma 'White Glitter'; Stickles "Crystal; white foam stars, rhinestones and pop foam (under snowflakes) all from my stash

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ have a wonderful Sunday!

    Love this take on the Trigger! The flakes look as if they're really falling in the foreground of the picturesque scene. Thanks for sharing,
