All the Trimmings

I'm hosting the challenge this week on the Crafty Secrets forum over at Splitcoast Stampers. The theme is "All the Trimmings," and I'm challenging everyone to use ribbon, rick-rack, scallops (the paper kind), pompoms, even jingle bells, etc. on their projects. Here is the sample card I made:

This card is for a elderly lady from our church. Her birthday is Christmas Eve, and she's laid up at home with a fractured disk in her back, so we're throwing her a card shower. I hope it brings a smile to her face.
