Chirstmas Challenges - Red & Green

Hi all, this could be my final challenge for this year, though Allsorts new challenge is Purple, so do need to create an anniversary card for hubby so will try to squeeze that one in before our visitors arrive. Then we will be off camping down the Great Ocean Road. Anyway enough waffle, so had this idea in my head for Inky Impressions Challenge to use an ornament in your creation. I found this wonderful idea in my Magnolia Ink 1 magazine, many years ago they used icing sugar, egg white and a few drops of lemon to make their ornaments for the tree. A little solid for a snowflake but didn't think it would hold together with spaces and not too sure my piping skills are upto it lol!We (Rosanna (my not so little helper, same height as me and only 12 and I) decided to add some dazzling diamonds to add a little sparkle, struggled with this card trying to keep to Red and Green, but did just manage to sneek a little purple in there lol. The ribbon says Merry Christmas and the ornament can be removed from the card to hang on the tree.
The metallic cardstock is from my stash (from many years ago), have used 'So Jolly' Magnolia for the background available from Kellie's Magnolia Store.
These are the challenges I have entered:
