I participated in a Christmas card swap. How can I pass up Christmas cards? This is similar to what I submitted for the swap. I added the Espresso scallop strip next to the ribbon. I had each version and the family voted on which was best and it was divided. I went with less because the Espresso didn't make it or break it, it was just there.
I also have to say that the acetate flocked paper that was part of the DP was really, really hard to cut through. The die I used didn't cut through it. My paper trimmer got a cut but it wasn't clear through. In both instances, I had to use scissors. I have heard some say that sandwiched between regular paper it cuts well. I wasn't aware of that tip at the time so I don't know if it works or not.
