Non Christmas stamp Christmas card

Been to Chris's today and we made a few Christmas cards using Non-Christmas stamps.
Here's the first one


I think that it has quite a contemporary feel to it - 
and it's definitely not one that Barry would like.
He likes to see traditional red green and gold for Christmas cards, 
whereas I like the non traditional colours.
Colours used - Night of Navy, Soft Sky and White
the stamp set used is Daydream Medallions and the embossing folder is 
Textured Impressions Delicate Designs .
Instead of ribbon we used a strip of silver glimmer paper
and added a few Basic Rhinestones.
Final touch was a spritz with shimmer spray  and a vintage button - mmm I like it!!
