Still no sentiment

This is another card for my CHNC challenge 138: no sentiment, using the sketch for Sunday stamps 56:

I used a ready edged tag shaped card, on to which I put some clear organza ribbon. I didn't want to completely stick this down as I didn't want adhesive to show through, so I stuck in places that I knew would be covered, wrapping around the inside and back too.

The circular embossed pictures have been in my Christmas stash for some time, but I've got no idea where they came from.I thought it was about time they were used and thought they went with the colour of the edging of the corner.

I've used a glittered vintage picture to cover over the ribbon joins:

And another one on the back:
