Truly Scrumptious Challenge 37 and Winter Wonderland

I have made this card for two challenges, although I haven't made my mind up yet if I like it or not.  The first challenge is Truly Scrumptious Challenge 37 to follow a sketch, with the optional theme of something recycled and the second challenge is Winter Wonderland which is to use no designer papers.
Cardstock - Die Cuts with a View, Bazzill and Core'dinations
Cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder
Ribbon recycled from a gift bag
Image from Little Claire Designs
Coloured with Distress Inks
I have sanded the core'dinations cardstock to reveal a lighter shade of blue, which is quite nice.  I am not really into ribbon and bows on my cards, however, I do like them on other peoples cards as they seem to be able to use them better.  Maybe I just don't have the right types of ribbon. 
Thanks for visiting, I do appreciate it.
