Merry and bright with CTMH and YNS

 Hey everyone
I have been busy in my craft room but I have a ton of cards still to make for Christmas!!!    Arghhh when to do them all.  I am liking how this one turned out so I might make a bunch.  Loving the sketch from your next stamp. This is my third entry!!   
Here is some close ups of the card.  I used ctmh stamp, left over ribbon, and old fiskar rubbin plates to get the embossing in my cuttle bug
I popped up the image and added ctmh silver glitz glitter gel
Here you can see the embossing on the blue and white
Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate all your comments!
Here are the challenges that inspired me:
Ccee stampers- embossing and glitter
Scrap booker PhDs- no red and green
Deep ocean - fav color
