Christmas in July Runs Into August

Here I am back at making cards and posting after a few days away. This week, Annabelle Stamps has a sketch challenge shown on the right.  This layout seemed to scream out  "Make a Christmas card".
And so I did.  I added some embossing, ribbons, ornaments, bling and sentiment and here is what I came up with.

Challenges :
Annabelle Stamps: Sketch absc052
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Use some ribbon on your card.
Sweet Stampin' Challenge: Christmas in July
Ribbon Carousel: Christmas in July
City Crafter Challenge: Solid as a rock. Use only solid color papers.
Creatalicious Challenge: Christmas in July
Really Reasonable Ribbon: Challenge is Bling and Ribbon.

Stamps: Annabelle"Stamped for Christmas"

Paper: GKD Red and  Metallic Gold CS
Ink: Versamark
EP: Ranger Red
EF: Cuttlebug Polka Dots
Spellbinders Label 4 Die
Ribbon from stash
Sprinkles from Annabelle Stamps

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
