Happy World Card Making Day

Today is World Card Making Day.  So I thought I would share one of my Christmas card for this year.  This is a very simple one that I just loved from the Autumn/Winter 2011 CMTH Idea book.  It is on page 120 if you would like to see the original.  I did not have some of the things they used to I changed it up a bit.  Be sure to check out Jeanette Lynton's blog for some great ideas too.
All products used are CMTH
I used all the same colors:  Barn Red, Cranberry, Bamboo, Cocoa, Kraft.
Inks were Cranberry and Cocoa
I did not have the cranberry ribbon so I used paper and folded it into pleats.
The white ribbon was from my stash
The pin clips Z1612 are new and I just love them.  I just tucked it behind one of the pleats so the pin part was not exposed.
The dove was cut on my Cricut using Tie the Knot page 35 shift> dove2s> @ 3/4"
Stamp Sets used were:
Remarkable Wreath C1473  **This is a must have I have lots of ideas for this one all year long.
Fill in the Blank D1493  **it has the dove it you don't have a Cricut, and the sentiment
I sponged around everything with Cranberry ink.
After taking the picture I thought I should have used some Bitty Sparkles  Z1263 for the bling!  Next one.

If you want me to show you how to do the pleats just let me know.
