CARDS blog button challenge...merry and bright ruffled ribbon and button garland

Hi friends!  I am soooo happy to be posting this card.  You see, my usual technology has failed PC won't boot up (ack!) and I am coming to you live from the kids computer, aka my old computer from 2001!  Oh my!  I am grateful to have access at all right now, but can I tell you that I have had quite a time figuring out how to edit photos, function without a working flash player, etc...really drives home how fast technology moves awhen you are not looking.  Still, there are way worse things than computer failure right?  So we soldier on because Christmas is coming, the CARDS blog button challenge was extended, I have a card to share and LIFE goes on. :)

So I used my five buttons for stringing into my ruffled ribbon garland for this card.  Fun!  Lots of lovely layers on this card.  Besides the luscious garland, I am loving the damask embossing folder, the sizzix die snowflake, the vintage ornament stamp and additions from Papertrey and Dawn McVey, pearl liquid applique and GLITTER!, yes friends, the glitter!

Just a touch of red glitter goes a long way to add some real vintage looking flair here.  Yum-o!

I'm so glad you could stop by today and I am so glad I was able to post something ;)  Cross your fingers for me that I can figure out the other computer's problems otherwise.....oh well, no use worrying over it right?  Have a goodie!
