Christmas Card: MojoMonday and SPCC Challenges

Here is a Christmas Card I made today for two different challenges:
SPCC's color combo this week is the following:
And here is MojoMonday's sketch this week:
When I saw the color combination over at SPCC, I immediately thought of some Christmas Tree Paper I've had since last year and hadn't used yet.  And I've been wanting to make a card with ornaments (Joys of the Season cartridge), so this sketch was perfect for the project!
.
Because the coordinating green on the back of the tree print paper has sort of a "vintage-grunge" look, I inked everything to give it an "older" feel.  I used the coordinating green to mat the card base. 
.
I used JOTS to cut the ornaments and layer...the olive green snowflake layer on the smaller ornament is attached it with a rhinestone brad and the inner portion is covered with a thin layer of glitter glue.  Then I cut a clear transparency with circular Christmas sentiments using my circle cutter to add over the border of the olive green layer on the snowflake layer (inked of course) and adhered with Tombo Aqua glue. 
.
I cut the trees from the tree patterned paper, inked the edges and layered them on the larger ornament.  I hand cut the snow, inked it and added glitter glue.  I cut the small star with JOTS as well, inked it and added glitter glue. 
.
I tied brown ribbons to both ornaments and layered them over two patterned paper strips (same paper as trees).  To finish off, I added three "snoball" embellishments...I even inked those!!!  :) 

TFL!!!
