The Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge 74: let's decorate

This is my design card for the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 74: let's decorate. This challenge is being sponsored by Floppy latte and I have used one of their digital images, 'Christmas prayer silhouette', coloured with copics. I decorated my card with 16 different pieces of ribbon stuck diagonally to a piece of card, mounting on to a piece of red mirror card and then on to gold. The image was matted on to red mirror card. Some glittered flowers with prima gold spacers were then added.

This was based on the sketch given for Unscripted 232, which I turned to the right:

Because of the reflection of the flash on the mirror card it was difficult to get a good photo - this is the best I could achieve - the card looks so much better in real life.

As this is a Christmas card, this verse from Floppy latte is on the insert:
