Christmas + Ribbon with Crafting with Dragonflies

This fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies our theme is Christmas + Ribbon. I raided my ribbon stash to make the tree; the star-studded ribbon is actually pieces of a collar my dog Walt wore when he was just a tiny puppy 10 years ago! I used a modified version of the Ribbon Frame Technique for the border.

Be sure to check out the gorgeous cards by my Crafting with Dragonflies teamies.

The backing papers are pre-glittered Core'Dinations cardstocks. Mom gifted me the metallic doiles; I cut down a gold one for the tree stump. The gold star is a patch, and I added some sequins & beads with Glossy Accents.
