RSS Xmas Banner-3rd piece

Hello again,
Here are the 'ingredients' for the 3rd piece of the Ready Steady Stamp challenge. When all the pieces are put together at the end of the challenge just before christmas it will form a banner.
Here is my latest effort. I know it's a shocking photo, but the weather has been so grim and it's so difficult to get good light.
I put the bottom white layer through the cuttlebug in the 'swirls' folder and then gave it a light swipe over with distress ink on cut'n'dry. For the red top layer I gold embossed all around the edges of the triangle and stamped my new swirl stamp randomly and embossed that too with gold E.P. Next I stamped a very old bauble stamp by Rubber Stampede, also in gold E.P. and gave it the glitter treatment. I cut this out and mounted it on the red layer using sticky fixers and stuck a border peel-off behind it so it looked like it was dangling, and then tied a bow in gold cord and stuck it to the top of the bauble. Finally I added a layer of organza ribbon to the top of the triangle, which I heated with the heat gun to make it go a little bit curly and then I pleated it and added a few sequins.

Thanks for looking.
