Christmas card - embossed decorative paper and ornament die cut, oval image and greeting with gold ribbon

For this Christmas card I started with the little oval image of an angel which I die cut (Nestibilities) from the back of a used Christmas card.  I sponged the edge in green and then mounted it to an embossed and sponged kraft ornament die cut (SX).  Really like how that worked out.  I found a piece of coordinating scrapbook paper which had subtle music notes on the top.  I used a musical embossing folder to enhance them and then sponged the area with brown and green ink.  I added gold ribbon to the neck of the ornament and a short piece to the back ground paper using double sided tape to secure the ends.  I adhered the background to a green card front.  I mounted the ornament over the end of the gold ribbon using 3D foam tape.  I sponged the edges of a little oval greeting (SU) which was stamped using a NOEL stamp from Quietfire before punching.  I mounted the greeting to a scalloped oval (SU) punched from the same green as the card.  I mounted this element to my card using 3D foam tape.              Therese
