Stars and Stamps midweek throwdown

This week's throw down was a recipe challenge. Use a die cut or punch, ribbon and heat or dry embossing. I finished this card, photographed it and then went online. Such a wonderful surprise to discover it matched the challenge exactly! I use Spellbinder & Sizzix dies and a Cuttlebug embossing plate. The sentiment is heat embossed white on navy. And the pretty white ribbon. Hmm, maybe I should buy a lotto ticket today? LOL.

This is beautiful. I think with slight adaptation you could make the center snowflake removable as an ornament.
