10 minute Christmas Card

One of the groups I'm on has challenged us to make a Christmas card in 10 minutes or under.  Easy peasy I thought!  I got myself organised and it took  me just under the 10 mins to do this card.  Clearing up took much, much longer - not helped by the fact that my ribbon fell off the spool and I had to wind it back on!  I started with a stamp I bought from Oyster Craft ages ago and stamped it onto white card using Versafine Onyx Black.  While it dried I cut my silver mat to fit my card blank and wrapped some black ribbon round it.  Then I popped it onto my card and added a little bow using a glue dot.  I stuck my image onto black card and cut round the edges with deckle-edged scissors then using a glue runner, stuck it to my card.  Finally I added some stickles to the corner decorations.
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Allsorts - Black and White plus one (silver)
Crafts and Me - Simples
Crafters Companion - Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Really Reasonable Ribbons - CAS Christmas and ribbon

Wow I can't believe this only took you 10 minutes, it's so stylish. Love the image, very classic.

It made me smile when you said it took longer to clean up than create!
