Birthday card

Afternoon everyone - hope you're all keeping safe and warm.  I was due to go to a workshop today but it was cancelled because of the snow.  The main roads are okay but seeing as we live in Somerset even getting out of the village is a problem as these roads don't get gritted.  Where I was due to go is quite high up with single track lanes (no passing spaces) which, I suppose, means you would only crash into the fields!!!  So, I'm pretty glad to be sitting at home playing.......

It's a friend's birthday at the end of the week and this is the card I've made for her.  I've been meaning to do some ribbon weaving for a while and had a design for this card in the back of my mind - so it was a perfect time to play.
