Come Let Us Adore Him

This week over at my favorite craft outlet store, they had all Christmas stamps 60% off, and I found this wonderful set by Our Daily Bread called "Come Let Us Adore Him." For this card, I used one of the 2 stars from the set and one of the 3 sentiments.
I used some lovely Graphic 45 paper for the card base and made a top-hinge card using the largest Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles die. I die cut another of the same rectangle to glue to the front to hide the top hinge. I stamped the sentiment and die cut it with another Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles die. Then I stamped the star and die cut it with a Spellbinders Small Circles Die and made a mat for it using a Spellbinders Stately Circles die I trimmed to fit. I adhered some gold ribbon to the card front and glue taped my sentiment down before adhering the star and background with foam tape. I added some red gemstones to finish it off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
