Ribbon Wreath

I've actually made two of these cards, one for my Father-in-Law and one for my Sister-in-Law, using Fraser tartan ribbon as this is our family tartan.  My hubby looks so handsome in his kilt, although he wears the hunting Fraser rather than this which is the dress Fraser.
The woven ribbon wreath is surprisingly easy to make, just Google "woven ribbon wreath" and you'll find umpteen tutorials if you fancy a go yourself.  I kept the rest of the card very simple to showcase the vibrant ribbon, just adding a tiny splash of tartan paper from my Boofle paper pack and a sentiment stamped with a Papermania stamp which I die cut with a Spellbinders Splendid Circles die.
Some red pearls and a bow to cover the join in the wreath finish it off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Card Crafter's Circle - #53 - red, white and green
Just Add Ink - #148 - Christmas
Aud Sentiments - seasonal sentiment
Stamp 'n' Doodle - something unusual
The Perfect Sentiment - #59 - Christmas
