Christmas card with a recipe

It's time for the fortnightly Christmas card club challenge and it was Zoe's turn to set the theme and she gave us a recipe: a button, three brads, ribbon and one other accessory.

I've used a couple of offcuts from my Christmas scraps box, splitting the green paper either side of the red and gold foiled card because it wasn't big enough to cover the card blank and filled the gap perfectly with the glittered ribbon. The picture is from the LOTV art pad set 18 winter wonderland. The button tops a rosette (which is my 'other accessory' that Zoe asked for) and I've used three brads.

This is also for:
