Penny Black Ribbons and Friday Sketchers challenges

I'm in my element this week - all these lovely ribbons I'm getting to use.

Penny Black Saturday challenge this week is to use ribbons - perfect lol! So I went with another ribbon blossom.

Penny Black stamp - Holiday Hugs from Sparklybits coloured with Distress Inks and Twinklers, sentiment is HOTP. Highlights done with Uniball Signo white gel pen (love it!!)
Paper is Anna Griffin from yonks ago
Ribbons are from Dainty Supplies and Hobbycraft
Sizzix Holly and Flower & Vines #2 die

Friday Sketchers #15 is a fab sketch by Mumur, perfect for Christmas cards (and I sure am in the Crimbo card mode). I'm also entering this card in the Dutch Dare challenge, which is to use an animal on your card this week.

Image is Penny Black Holly Jolly Christmas from Sparklybits again coloured with Distress Inks and Twinklers, sentiment is HOTP
Paper again is from a few years back, no name on it - sorry
Ribbon is from Dainty Supplies - a 20 meter reel costs £2.88 - bargain or what!!
Flower is Papermania (but I attacked it with a pair of scissors as it was way too big)

Thanks for looking,
