Really Reasonable Ribbon

The challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon this time is Christmas.  I pulled out a digital image from the Graphics Fairy that I've used before and built my card around it, being sure to make the ribbon a prominent feature. 


I started by stamping the music background on parchment paper, distressing around the edges with tea dye distress ink.  I also distressed the sentiment panel and the angel image.  The ribbon is from Kath - it appears to be organdy bordered in satin and it glimmers so beautifully!  After assembling everything I thought it needed a little something down in the corner, so I added the holly sticker.

Supplies: red and parchment cardstock, digital image from the Graphics Fairy (look under the angel category), Hero Arts CG222 Music Background, CL460 Joy to All, Anita's Teddy Bear brown, tea dye distress and Adirondack cranberry inks, K&Company sticker, gold ribbon
