Tuesday afternoon- and some challenges

Hi All,
I'm back, lunch was a success!  I had a really easy job. Get the candles ready for the tables. I wasn't gone that long and the slurry guys were able to put the second coat on.  Which means our street may be available late tomoorrow or early Thursday. So I thought I would get another Christmas card made for my mailings and enter some challenges
 Check out that cute little charm. When I was in Michigan and went too Frankenmouth, I found this huge bead store. Long story short. I was looking for a certain bead for a friend of mine who is a beadier and I found the last 5.  I will see her in a couple of weeks when we do our gift exchange. That is not the bead but I needed a charm for one of the challenges.

 Boo hoo, I pressed too hard on my stamp I think I will add a little stickles to the middle of that, it should help it look a little better
This is crinkle ribbon that my friend Julie sells over at 3 girl Jam. It is really nice and  very uniform in color. This is a deep rich chocolate, hence the name hot chocolate. I thought I would try pleating it.  I wasn't sure how the crinkle ribbon would come out pleated, but I do like it.  It has a very romantic kind of look.
See my tiny seasons Greetings that is from an Inkadinkadoo stamp. the ink is Jenni Bowlin Brown sugar.
This is a 4.25x 4.25 card the card stock is PTI vintage cream and the patterned paper is DCWV Christmas combo stack.  I also used the white Sakura opaque pen to faux stitch around the bird to help pop it from the similar background.
