52 (Christmas) Card Recipe Challenge

I'm sure enjoying these challenges to get my Christmas cards made for this year!  This week it's a recipe challenge of making a monchromatic, clean & simple (CAS) card with a rhinestone and ribbon.  Hmmm...  not too hard...  (At least I had an idea upon seeing the challenge.)

I got out some white core paper and a Cuttlebug embossing folder of a really cool Christmas tree.  I embossed then sanded for a touch of dramatic. Add some text from an old The Angel Co. stamp set, ribbon, and a rhinestone and, voila! I have had this embossing folder for quite some time but I think this is about the 2nd time I've ever used it.

I think this card qualifies for the recipe. What do you think?  Check out the other entries at 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown.
(As of my post time I was the 4th entry.)

Cute card, Sista'. It is a beauty and doesn't look too difficult. I think it would be pretty in blue.
