No Rubber!

I was sure I wasn't going to manage to make a card for this week's Allsorts Challenge...as we're not allowed to use any rubber stamps...eek! But I found some large cardstock stickers that came with my 'Figgy Pudding' paper pack (by BasicGrey), so decided to use one of the baubles in place of a stamped image. I mounted it onto some card, and cut around it carefully with my craft knife (to make it a bit sturdier), and tied a piece of ribbon through the hole at the top. The background paper is from the same pack, and I cut a sentiment using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet, and added a few pieces of card candy.
