Less is More week 25 "ribbon/button or both"

Well I must be psychic! I got so excited with my new embosslits button die that I rushed through another card for last week's LIM challenge and what did I find this morning? A ribbon and button challenge! Too quick for my own good:)
Lovely cards as usual from Lady and Diva LIM, I'm always inspired by the tips and techniques that they share with us.
Anyway on to my entry this week, I decided to use some alphabet stamps from The Stamp Man and do another Christmas card! I stamped the letters and coloured them with promarkers and used glitter to outline the shapes. They are mounted on gold mirri and the ribbon is from Meiflower. Of course I had to use a button:) which I overstamped and threaded purple cord through.
Thanks for looking:)

I love those alphabet stamps Valerie.... what a super card.
LIMettes are psychic you know... so many seem to pre-empt our upcoming challenges by submitting a suitable card in the previous week! Odd or what! Mandi and I often have smile when we spot them!
Thanks so much

My card last week would've been just right for this week too Val! I love the stained glass effect letters on your card and the criss-crossed ribbon is fab with its button embellishment.
