All ruffled up!

I tried something a little different on this card, but I don't think it quite worked. I have been seeing some lovely ruffled ribbon lately and wanted to give it a go. I wasn't sure how to ruffle up the ribbon, and I ended up folding it over as it was going through the sewing machine. The result is that the ribbon is flat - not the effect I wanted at all. So if anyone knows where I'm going wrong, please let me know. Or, you could do a tut and show us all (wink* wink*)     :-))

 I used the fabulous Mary and Joseph image from LOTV, coloured with Copics and a Sakura glitter gel pen on their headbands. The Fa La La stamp is Catslife Press and my DP is My Mind's Eye, Signature Christmas.
I cut the large snowflake on my Slice machine ( Fa La La Design), covered it with Diamond Dust and added a gem brad in the centre. Then I trickled some stickles glitter around the edges of the stamps.

Challenges - 
 ABC - H is for Holidays, it doesn't have to be Christmas, you can choose any holiday you like.

Lovely card! Maybe try sewing only down the middle so it still ruffles on the ourside? But it still looks great;0) Hope you are having a great weekend;0) Just came back from a stamp convention and had a blast! Don't think the DH will agree when he finds out how much I Take care;0)
