Christmas Ribbon

The current 52 {Christmas} Card Thowdown challenge is to use 'ribbon'.  I used card and ribbon snippets, so am also in the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop,


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk 
Dies: Memory Box 'Traditional Ornament', Memory Box 'Lydia Ornament', Presscut 'Merry Christmas'
Embossing: Crafts-Too 'Twinkle', Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Turquoise matt 
Snippets: White card, gold mirri and turquoise ribbon

I embossed a snippet of white card, layered it onto gold mirri and turquoise card before attaching it to the card blank.  I die-cut the Lydia ornament from gold mirri and attached it to a Traditional ornament which has been die-cut from turquoise card.  The ornament was attached to the card front and a small bow attached to the top.  The sentiment was die-cut from gold mirri and attached to the lower edge of the card.
