christmas cake

Evening eveybody! It's a windy one here but I'm tucked up all cosy in my jammies!
This card I am a bit unsure about! I'm not sure it's christmasy enough. I initially thought the paper was christmasy because of the candy canes but as I started to do something I had to add the ribbon to make it more festive. I hope it has worked. It is based on a sketch #2 at christmas stampin all year long.
I have used an old Dovercraft stamp set of cupcakes which I stamped onto the matching paper and also onto some mirri card, and then fussy cut. It has various toppings and bottoms in it whcih is good. The cadle is from another freebie set from a magazine and the canes are from a MME christmas set. the sweet is from a freebie set from a magazine from ages ago. I got the snowman ribbon ages ago.
I added a red strip with a yellow piece underneath. I have used a X cut border punch on this.
I have also stamped the inside.
have a great evening everyone! I am looking forward to getting lots of crafting done this weekend as my little man is off the grandmas for the weekend!!
I am entering this in the following :
my current favourite technique is stamping and then fussy cutting it out
