CASE - ing Christmas

Time to CASE Christmas again and here is the card
we have to CASE this week.

I have let the purple lead me and this is my take

I have used shim card for the card base and then used 
Woven embossing folder by Couture Creations to give
I chose to use wide wired gold ribbon for the base of my banner
and had all sorts of trouble getting it to lay down.
The swirl is by Memory Box and called 
Magic Flourish.
I have cut it in half and didn't then place it close enough 
together to get it how I wanted it.
That's what comes of rushing.
Coloured the stamp with Tombow 636
and the little star is from an EK success Christmas tree punch.
I am trying to make my card less bulky this year
to keep the postage down.

Am entering this in:
