Bells and Ribbons

Good Morning to my lovely friends and  followers . Well I'm back from my holidays and apart from the cold have got settled back into life back home .We had a fabulous holiday great weather between 85 and 90 degrees and enjoyed a lovely four days down on The Florida Keys . So its back to reality now.
My card today is the last of the samples I made for Crafty Ribbons  using the beautiful new Christmas 2015 designs. This card is a bit different in that its 6x8 not made one that shape in a long time and  there is no stamp.or flowers !! I did enjoy making this card and  this particular ribbon set is just gorgeous so versatile. its called Christmas Charm and  there is a great range of different designs.

Card Recipe

Green card is Tim Holtz
Cream textured background paper is from a First Edition paper pad called Christmas Village
All the lace ribbons and button are from The Christmas Charm Collection at Crafty Ribbons
