H2H Sketch 16 Challenge

Hello, stampers;
Today is MONDAY!! A wonderful time for another
This week, we were given a sketch to follow...
I love this sketch, is simple but it also give you the opportunity to make any card, funny or elegant, for girls or boys...and for any occasion!!
This is the card I made:
*(1) 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Cranberry CS.
*(1) 8" x 5-1/4" piece of Cashmere CS -score @ 4" on the 8" side.
* (1) 2" wide strip of Cranberry-adhere on an angle; then cut off the excess.
*(1) 1-7/8" strip of Pear & Partridge Paper Collection.
For the image:
*(1) 2-3/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Cashmere CS -adhere this piece over the card piece using foam tape.
*(1) 2-3/4" x 2" piece of Cranberry CS -adhere two strips of ribbon over this piece before adhering the Colonial White piece.
*(1) 2-1/2" x 3" piece of Colonial White-stamp the image on this piece using Chocolate ink; stamp the message as on the picture using Cranberry ink; add red rhinestones. Adhere this piece using foam tape.
To finish my card, I added a red felt snowflake instead of a circle.

This is how the inside looks...
Hope you enjoy this card!
