Christmas Card with Stripes

The challenge for this week over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge is to use stripes. A quick rummage through my Christmas stuff and this is what I came up with:
I used:

- white DL card stock

- backing paper and die cut topper by Craftwork Cards, free with Creative Cardmaking Magazine some while back

- perfectly matching ribbon from the ribbon box - yay, I love it when that happens :)

- Josy Rose nail heads

Super quick make today, I love it when a plan comes together - unlike yesterday's card and all the angst over those Spellbinders dies.

Friday Feast will be posted tomorrow, it's a scummy cake but I need to write up the recipe yet. Told you I was busy :)
