CHNC challenge 166: ribbon, twine, fibre etc

This is my card for today's CHNC challenge 166: ribbon, twine, fibre etc. I hope you will click on the link and see the lovely card that my guest has made and please dig out that ribbon, twine etc and join in. Can you believe it's already March now ... two months of the year gone!

For my card I followed the sketch given for Sketch n stash 133 - I certainly used up some old stash, particularly the fibres which I have had for years - I have two boxes of them and they hardly ever get used nowadays.

I used 8715 Merry Christmas that was kindly supplied by one of the sponsors of my challenge, QKR Stampede, colouring with spectrum noir pens, tearing round the edges and colouring with one of the pens.
The white background was embssed using an Embossalicious folder with my eBosser. on to which I matted a piece of Hunkydory card with white spots and gold foiling. I added a few punched snowflakes using snippets of gold mirror card and, of course, added the three strands of fibres around the edge.
