Yet another Christmas idea

I'm still in the process of testing out some various ideas for my Christmas cards this year.  I kind of want something simple, because we will *hopefully* have moved by Christmas and our cards may double as "we've moved" announcements, which would mean I'll have to make a whole ton of them.

This card was made with only scraps and supplies that I already have.  I cut the word "Joy" from Create a Critter at 2 1/2 inches (cut to length of 5 inches).  I used white cardstock as the background, and stamped it with a little snowflake rubber stamp.  I don't know who makes it; it was given to me in a whole lot of craft supplies that someone I know didn't want anymore.  The ribbon is from that same "haul."  I used Doodlebug red ink.  I'm a novice at pigment ink, so please forgive the few smudges that may be visible in the picture.  I tried to cover them with the ribbon.

Although I am still in love with my snowman couple, I think that this card may be closer to what I may make,  for Christmas, although not exactly what I will probably end up with.  The price would certainly be right- I'd only have to go get a couple of pieces of cardstock and maybe a red dye ink pad.  ;)

I'm entering this in the following challenge:
