Card Design: Christmas Card Panic Continues

Okay, the husband is fed, the rest of the Christmas decorations (well the ones we've decided on anyways) have been put up, and two and one-half more cards have been created.  That is a total of six.  Woo-hoo.  Here is number two.  This one is even more simple than the first one.

The curse of my inability to make anything straight hits again.  Neither my ribbon, nor my sentiment inside are as straight as I wanted them.  I can measure three times and still end up crooked.  I tell you someone put a curse on me a long time ago ensuring that I see the world through unbalanced eyes.  And yes, all connotations of unbalanced certainly apply to me.

Here are the details.  I hope I haven't forgotten anything...
  • Image of the tree is a sticker from my stash picked up last Christmas at Dollarama.  The tree has green and red in it and the ribbon of course is red fulfilling a colour element for one of the challenges.  
  • To fulfill the requirements of one of the challenges, "use a star", this image has one on the top of the tree.
  • Paper:  The base is from another card set I got at Dollarama(R) awhile back so it is from my stash as well. 
  • The sentiment inside is also from a year old stash of rub-ons I also got at Dollarama(R).  I also classify the inside sentiment as a scrap because it was one of a few items left over to use on the aforementioned rub-on transfer sheet.  Although it doesn't really look it, the sentiment is also green fulfilling another challenge element.
  • One of the challenges asked for metalic of some sort.  While it may be difficult to see the ribbon has gold metalic on the edges.  The ribbon also counts as a scrap for the challenge.  I had cut some ribbon awhile back and didn't use it so it went into my 'ribbon bits' container and I used it up on this card. 
I have entered this card into the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to leave some love if you have the time.

Until next time,

Well I for one love it!! Don't feel bad, I suffer from the same curse only mine is walking through a doorway and always bouncing off the door frame! Crooked is as crooked does (my rendition of Forest Gump). So you could send this to me and I'd never know..LOL.
Great job on the moving forward of Christmas cards. I really LOVE the vintage appeal of this!
Thank you also for joining us at Make It Monday and Top Tip Tuesday too.
hugs to you,
The other one xx
