Inky Impressions Challenges - Use Ribbons

Hi everyone! Woah, what a day I've had! My internet connection is sketchy to say the least and my provider is blaming the 'blockers' on the new hospital near where I live... of course they also blame the cold weather when that suits them.. *rolls eyes*. Anywhoooo, I've had a dickens of a job to get anything to upload but persistence paid off!!

There is a new challenge starting over on Inky Impressions Challenges and this week we want to see RIBBONS!! You can use one, you can use ten.. just as long as there is ribbon somewhere on your project ;)

For my card I've used one of the new Christmas Stamps - Joey & Lynnie's Cookies for Santa - I loved colouring this stamp. So detailed yet not too detailed. The matching sentiment is perfect.

My papers are Cosmo Cricket Winter Mitten, matted and machine stitched to white and teal cardstock. The beautiful green shimmery ribbon is by Martha Stewart and I won it a long while back on Jacque's blog
