A Lili of the Valley Christmas Card

I've had a heavy couple of weeks and haven't felt like making anything really apart from my DT work but got the crafting bug last night and came up with this Christmas card. I've used the gorgeous Christmas Candle stamp by Lili of the Valley that I won on the LOTV Ideas to Inspire Blog a couple of weeks ago, I love it, it is so beautiful and a joy to colour. My ribbon was a purchase from the Hobby House stand at Ally Pally, I could have easily spend hundreds and hundreds on that one stand. I am so glad I do not live near the Hobby House shop as I would be in their permanently and my OH would probably file for divorce ;-)

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Supplies:
Card blank - Craftwork Cards, I love this shape
Papers - Jovial by Basic Grey from The Glitter Pot
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics
Image - Christmas Candle by Lili of the Valley coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - freebie download from Caz's fab blog printed on kraft paper
Poinsettia - Bazzill
Pearl brad - the Hobby House
Adhesive pearls - the Hobby House
Tools - Tea Dye Distress Ink, glimmer mist, X Cut guillotine, hole punch for ticket sentiment
