Christmas cards all year round January mid-month inspiration

It's time for mid-month inspiration for CCAYR January and this is my first design card. Please click on the link and see the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the team.The challenge is being sponsored by Beccy's Place and I've used images from Beccy's gingerbread set (love these) - I mixed them up digitally. Please click here to join in the January challenge at CCAYR - we'd love to see your Christmas crafting there.

I've used a pale lemon A5 card blank. The striped pieces of card are left over pieces from a Kanban kit from long ago - the colours matched perfectly. The snowflakes are some wooden ones that have been in my Christmas box for ages - I was going to ink or paint them, but decided they were best left plain as they matched so well.
