Flourishes Christmas card swap

A few weeks ago Julie {Flourishes DT coordinator} asked if any of us would like to participate in a Secret Christmas Card Swap, I said yes of course.  We all are posting the cards we made and sent to our fellow team mate.  The card below is the card that I made for the one and only Cindy Haffner.  She lives in Canada so I was freaking a little worrying if she received it, I hear that she did.  The image is from the Poinsettia & Boxwood stamp set and the sentiment is from the City of David stamp set, both are from Flourishes llc.  I distressed the edges of my back panel and sewed along the edge.  The red and vintage cream card stock was cut and embossed using a Spellbinders Label 2 die.  I colored in the image using copic markers.  The patterned paper is from this years MME Christmas paper pack.  A card wouldn't be perfect without some yummy ribbon, so I used some SU stripped grosgrain ribbon, then using twine I attached a button to the center of the bow.  I hope this brought a little smile to Cindy's face when it came in her mailbox (I also sent her some of my favorite ribbon too).  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  Today the movers get here, so its going to be a very long day!
Here are the links to the rest of the ladies who also participated


Be sure to visit the Flourishes blog, the blogger team has the final challenge posted.

Beautiful card Latisha! I'm curious, how do you mail a card like this when it has so much ribbon on it? In a bubble mailer? Good luck with the movers! I love the photo below too!
