May Arts Christmas Card Challenge Entry

May Arts is having a Christmas Card Challenge.

I submitted my idea and was chosen to participate in the challenge,
So here is my entry...Hope you like it.

These are the ribbons I was sent to use on my card. We did not have to use them all.
I used the entire bottom row, the green & brown in the middle of the top row.

Oh my goodness this card was fun to do. Thanks for the Ribbons Bethney from May Arts!!!

So here is what I did to create this card. I used 7 of 10 colors sent to me for the Christmas Card Challenge.
All the looped ribbon is sewn onto Mulberry paper.
The Mulberry paper was prepped by tearing the edges and inking with TH Distress Ink and Distress glitter added along with bits of Mica Flakes.
The snow on the bottom of the paper was created with White ribbon, Glitter and flakes.
The Tiny bows on the tree were glued on knots. 
The bow on the top of the tree was first sewn in the middle to keep it together and tied with a knot in the center and glued to the card using Tombow glue squares. 
The banner at the bottom was created with blue ribbon stamped with a Christmas greeting using pigment ink. 
Then I sewed the Mulberry paper to 110 lb white Recollection card stock. 
And the mulberry paper was sprayed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine White spray. 
Hope you like it.
