Merry Monday #24

Time to cool off with my weekly Christmas card!  I love the cool blues for Christmas cards.  They are a soothing change from the traditional colors.  My card is based on the sketch this week at Merry Monday-

 My ornament is cut out with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  The blue ribbon is Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon that I dyed to match my paper.

I ran the ornament through my Xyron machine and then covered in Prisma Glitter.  I added a bling button to my bow to give the card a little more sparkle.
