CHNC challenge 61: use a ribbon and/or a charm

It's time for another challenge on my CHNC blog - by the time this one has ended we'll be into March already - this year seems to be going at a remarkable speed - all the more reason to get some of those Christmas cards made early to avoid panic later in the year.

For challenge 61 I'm asking you to use a ribbon (or anything similar, like twine, ric rac, lace etc) and/or a charm. I've opted to use ribbon for my cards - I hope I might be back later in the week with a card that includes a charm - we'll see. Please click on the link for the challenge and join in if you can - I'd love to see you there.

I've used Anna Griffin materials for these cards - they are both very glittery.

I'm linking these for:
