Tie A Red Ribbon

Morning folks, sorry about the title but that song popped into my head (you know the one I mean about the yellow one lol). It's Monday again and I can't believe how close it's getting to Christmas, really must get my cards in the post!
This week's challenge at Make My Monday, continuing with the December theme of Seasonal, is to use Red Ribbon on your creation so my inspiration is another Christmas card.


I've used a favourite Magenta stamp for my card which although not meant for Christmas is very good for seasonal cards with the music and berries. I stamped with VersaFine black and inked the panel then added detail with pencils and Promarkers.
I covered the card with Polka Doodles papers then added some scrunched red ribbon and a stamped, die cut and inked sentiment (Polka Doodles Christmas kit) finishing with the bird panel.

The Design Team have made some gorgeous and very varied cards to inspire you so do pop over for a look and hope to see you there.

Challenges for my card:
Card Makin' Mamas - Christmas
Raise The Bar - Christmas
Stampin' For The Weekend -  Christmas
2 Sisters -  Christmas
One Stop Craft - Traditional Christmas Colours
Dream Valley - Christmas
Paper Sundaes - Anything  Christmas
The Squirrel & The Fox -  Christmas

Have a great day and hopefully I'll be back later with more Of Tim's tags and also my hubby's birthday card as it's his birthday today.
