The Challenge! 
Christmas And Ribbon
Make a Christmas project (card, tag, layout, 3D item etc) and make sure you include a ribbon....or two....or three, as many as you like!
Here are my cards, hope you enjoy them!
My first card uses the glorious Power Poppy set, Glistening Paperwhites.  I stamped this fabulous image on a Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25 die cut, it showcases it perfectly!  Images colored with Copic Markers.  My sentiment is stamped on to a Sizzix Tags And Labels die cut, in Black Licorice and Pear Pizzazz ink.  Inside is a wisp of the Plaid Designer Paper cut using an MFT Bracket Edge Duo die.
Sheer Ribbon, Flower Button and Twine for accents.  I've also added some Enamel Brads and a lone Candy Dot.  Shimmer and shine added using Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Pen and Sakura Glitter pens in Teal and Yellow. 
My next card is a bit more warmer and a wee bit rustic. 

This Power Poppy set is Simple Joys!  Images colored with Copic Markers.  I stamped the gorgeous basket of pinecones and greenery onto a Spellbinders Perfectly Pierced Classic Frame.  That same MFT die, Bracket Edge Duo used to hi-light my Designer Papers.   

Sentiment stamped in Black Licorice ink.  Gingham Ribbon, Button and Twine for accent.  I also added a bit of shimmer using a Sakura Glaze Pen to hi-light the holly berries. 
Here are the full stamp sets I used:
