Charisma Cardz Challenge #43 - No Backing Papers

Hi everyone out there in the land of blogs. All is well with you I hope. The weather continues to be very wet and windy so there is nothing for it but to shut myself in the craftroom and make some cards.
The requirement for this challenge from Charisma Cardz was that there were to be "No Backing Papers". Sounded odd but when you think about it you can do a lot with card and ribbon to create patterns so it was an enjoyable project.
I have mounted turquiose bazzil bling onto white card and stuck white card that has been through a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder on top of that. Then more turquoise with a punched Martha Stewart Arched border. I have added a decorative ribbon along the bottom just above the border. Mounted on that is a cream card that has been through a Cuttlebug Snowflake folder. Finally I have mounted the images from Inkadinkado set No 99466 - Holiday Sillouettes stamped onto white card.
Thanks for looking at my blog, I really appreciate it and would love you to leave a comment if you have time.
Hugs,
