Looking for "The Card"

Every year it's time to start thinking about getting my Christmas Cards done I start playing with different designs and papers.   It usually takes me 3 or 4 different tries to find one I really like and want to make "the Card".   The one I'm going to send out to friends and family that year.   Of course,  all the "tries" get sent out too, LOL!   I really like this card design but I think I would use a different color green.  I have some new
A Muse Wasabi that I think would go great with this design,  just didn't have the ribbon to go with it and I liked the dimension the ribbon added.   Guess I'll just have to call my A Muse Demo and place another order for Wasabi Satin Ribbon, haha!  I'm sure she won't mind. Also had chance to use Stardust Finishing Spray which IRL, is very sparkly on the trees.

The card  is inspired from  Card Patterns #132.   I made this card for the A-Muse-A-Palooza Challenge #3.  More to come with my Christmas Cards ...  Supplies:  A Muse Candy Cane CS, Misc White CS, Stamps A Muse Cool Yule,  A Muse Ink Cherry, Lime (bottom card Wasabi),  A Muse Lime Satin Ribbon, A Muse Stardust Finishing Spray, Scallop Border Punch
