Traditional Christmas colours

It's time for another challenge for the Christmas Card Club and Debi asked us to make a three fold card using traditional Christmas colours. I know that there are a few interpretations of what a three fold card is.

I opted in the end for a gate fold with an extra flap - I hope this is OK for the challenge, because I know that strictly speaking it isn't actually a three fold, but a two fold with a flap! I originally thought of making a zigzag card - might make one later (ages since I made one of those).

Anyway, back to this card. Papers are double sided from Echo Park very merry Christmas. Other elements are from Hunkydory kits, plus a piece of grosgrain ribbon from stash.

On the first picture the paper clip is only to keep the card closed for the photo, which had to be taken at an angle because of glare.
