Another day another card

This week 52CCT want us to pick a sketch and there are
lots to choose from.
I chose to go with #5
This is what I made.  Not the traditional Christmas card.

 The DP is by Bearly Mine and I won it in a challenge sometime ago
but have only just plucked up courage to print it out.
Such pretty designs, and would you believe, my printer has now 
decided it has had enough after about 15 years!.

I have kept it very simple really to show of this beautiful paper.

Ruth you will be pleased to know that the inside matches the front
however this is the only photo that came out well enough to print.

I painted the star with my Galaxy Gold ink and Tilda has been 
fussy cut and mounted on 3D foam.
The ribbon has a gold thread running through it and 
I cheated and used a sticker for a greeting.

Am entering this in:

Thanks for dropping in.
