LOTV Christmas cutie

Hope you are all having some sunshine today - the sky is clear here, beautiful and bright. Have just spent hours trailing around for cake tins for the cakes hubby is making as gifts. I should have bought tins of chocolate roses, eaten them and put the cakes in there - would have been cheaper too lol.
The card
This is a lovely stamp by Lili of the Valley (another of my unstamped ones) called Skating along and l could not resist adding glossy accents to give the effect of ice. The ribbon l have had for a few years - think l got it from Samuel Taylors and have only used it flat around card and not made a bow with it before, l am pleased with the bow it looks gorgeous and gives great dimension..
I am entering this card into the following challenges

Colour Create wk 82 - Burgundy, gold, green & cream
LOTV wk 117 - Bingo ( gems, distressing & pins)
Christmas Stampin - Spark a lay

Thanks for stopping by x Susan x
