C4C44 and Papertrey Paper Dolls #10

Today's card meets two challenges--well, three actually. I used the sketch from the Papertrey Paper Dolls' Challenge #10, and the guidelines from Crazy 4 Challenges 44 to use two or more ribbons and combined them on this card. And, I'm just realizing that since it's a Christmas card, it's in the spirit of my own Christmas in July challenge! (Details on that here.) Forgive the picture location--yes, that is a kitty condo! I was in a hurry and the only decent light was at the patio doors where the condo sits. You'll see a few more cards with that background in the next week or so! :-D

I used a sticker for my focal point, one a friend had given me last year that I saved to make a card this year. It makes a pretty cute Christmas card, I think! I used Spellbinders dies to cut out the gold and white papers, embossed the red--and swiped it with gold ink--and threw in a piece of PTI PP cut with a border punch. After stamping the sentiment, I mounted it on one ribbon, which I tied at the ends with another ribbon. Oh, and the little snowflake stickers came with the snow globe sticker. Now I have two Christmas cards done, LOL!

Wow, glad I zoomed in on the photo - to see all the lovely details. VERY nice intricate Xmas card! Love the gold, dry & heat embossing, the snow globe and how you added the patterned paper (which I wouldn't think would match, but it looks beautiful) to the mix. I think you rocked all three challenges!
