Creative Card Crew - Ribbons and Gems

It my turn to set the challenge this week at Creative Card Crew......ribbons and gems sprang to mind with Christmas racing towards us!

I've had this blue ribbon in my stash since I started card making years ago, it has been much stroked but never cut and put onto a card until now! With my colour scheme set all I had to do was decide what stamp to use. I heard Maggie calling from the cupboard, the stars on her dress fit in pretty well with the stars on the ribbon so all I had to do then was pick my papers - mmmmm, so many papers but only 1 pack that would fit in nicely with my colours, last years Dovecraft Christmas pack. Image coloured with copics and gelly roll pens and MS punch used on some of the borders. Added a tag with greeting on, a few gems and there we have it!

Trying to keep on decorating the inside of my cards, so far so good, but you will have noticed that it has slowed down the number of cards I've made recently ROFL - most like brought it to a standstill!!!
I've just noticed that I haven't put a white panel inside this card for the greeting etc to be written, must do that before I seal it up.

The challenge this week is sponsored by The Creative Cottage, not sure what the prize is so you'll have to visit the CCC blog to find out more....
