Winter Wishes

Todays card is for the make it monday ruffled ribbon challenge over at PTI. I joined in with the MIM challenge last week and had alot of fun so I figured I would play again. 
I started off with a kraft card base and layered it with aquamist. My patterned paper is from the fancy pants Saint Nick 6 x 6 pad. I added my ruffled ribbon just like dawn showed us in the video. I added some recollections bling to it for a little sparkle. I wasnt sure about doing this. Is it too much bling? Next I cut a label  using the fancy tags 3 from spellbinders. I stamped a small snowflake from the winter penguin set all over the label in aquamist ink. I stamped the circle from tag-its 10 and the greeting is from winter penguin. I distressed everything with chai ink. I stamped the big stamp and a small stamp from the mega mehndi madallion set onto cream cardstock and cut them with snowfake dies from Our Daily Bread Designs. I cut two snowflakes in aqua mist to layer them. I added some more bling to finish it off.
 Then I realized that I glued everything upside down on my card base...lol!!! I had to cut the whole front off and glue it on another card base to save the card. Thats the first time I have ever done that. Thanks for visiting my blog today.
