3 is the Magic Number!

Good Morning all!
I have to say I almost forgot to do this post!
I've spent the last few days coughing & sneezing in no particular order 
& my head has just been full of cotton wool! lol
Okay, so now that I have remembered!!!
we have a recipe for you!
The theme is a Recipe of 3's!
We'd like you to use 3 papers, 3 Buttons or Brads & 3 Ribbons
Our Sponsor this week is 

The prize?
 Yep, in keeping with the theme, 3 digi's of the winner's choice!
Here's my card!

The image I have used is Holly Mouse Hanging Stocking from 
She's just adorable & she's on SALE for just 59p right now!
  You can grab her & some of the other fabby Specials Here
I made my card with a 5" x5" card blank.
The DP's I have used are from Papermania.
Holly was coloured with Promarkers & for Health & Safety reasons,
I was careful that the fire was not lit while she was hanging her stocking!
I added some glittery accents but I'm not sure you can make 
them out in the photo's
Holly was the mounted onto some mirror card.
I added 3 tabs of ribbon from my stash.

I added 3 snowflake brads which have been in my stash for years.
I also added a ribbon which I knotted with two other short lengths.

I tried to add some faux stitching around the edge of my card 
by piercing then joining up the dots with a glitter pen.
Perhaps I should have used a darker pen as it doesn't seem to 
show up very well in my photo's!
Thanks for stopping by & I hope you'll find some time to play with us at
