Craft-Dee BowZ Challenge time

Hi all
It is time for another challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ .The theme as always is anything with a handmade bow.The Dt are Rocking a Christmas theme for your inspiration this month...Here is my card .I used an Indigo blue stamp and some fab sparkly red wow embossing powder on the whole card...If you cant sparkle at Christmas when can you ....!!!
I also used silver mirror card and a cheery lynn die for the swirls.The flower stamp is actually an anemone stamped flower by Sheena douglas which also got the sparkly treatment and I added an acetate flower to the top. The pretty silver organza  ribbon was part of my MPP pack this month ...It made a stunning bow .I also as always used my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow making tool ...I use it for every bow I make and it never lets me down.
Here is a close up of my bow..
