Comfort & Joy - CFC101

First, I have to tell you what a FUN day I had yesterday :)  I went to a large Scrapbooking/Stamping Expo yesterday with several of my (very fun) friends.  I had such a good time!  Friends...paper crafts shopping...lunch & laughter.  What more could I ask for!

Ok.  Moving on :o)

Crazy 4 Challenges is doing a bingo challenge.  These challenges are a lot of fun.  Here are the challenge deets:
The 3 elements that I chose from the bingo card are - embossing, die cuts and ribbon.  And, since I'm waaaay behind on making my Christmas cards...I'm adding to my stash.

Take a look.

The red and white ribbon on my card, is some that I bought yesterday at the Expo.  The red and white herringbone pattern reminded me of candy canes.  Love that ribbon.
I don't know if you can see it, but I added some frosted lace stickles to the snow flakes.  It was difficult to photograph that detail, but it shows up much better IRL.  I used dry embossing and heat embossing on my card.  My die cut is a little Spellbinders star die, to which I've added a red gem. 

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
