Dottie's World Challenge - Ribbons and Lace

Hi everybody,
I'm planning on doing some blog hopping at some point today, I have seriously neglected all my blogging buddies lately, I even have a few awards to show that I haven't thanked people for yet, I need to get my a**e into gear!
Anyhow, It's Adele's turn to set the challenge over at Dottie's World this week. She wants us to use ribbon and/or lace and lots of texture in our creations.
I had it all planned in my head but it didn't turn out right at all I'm afraid. My mojo has been a bit vacant lately. On the left you'll see the gorgeous detail on the ribbon I've been saving for this challenge, the trouble is, it didn't quite 'go' with the rest of the card.

I used the Angel and the Christmas tree from the Christmas Download collection from Charmed Cards and Crafts for this one (linked blinkie in my sidebar). I gave it some bling with gems on the tree then some texture with my Christmas CB embossing folder.
Here's the close up- I've just noticed that the glue is still wet! No surprises there I hear you cry!

If you'd like to play along visit Dottie's World for more details and lots of inspiration from my fabulous team.
