Gingerbread at CCAYR - with three buttons and ribbon!

Hello there! Second post for today - being the 1st of the month its time for all of those fabulous monthly challenges to come up with a new idea - and this time christmascardsallyearround is doing the May challenge on Gingerbread - but I think there also has to be ribbon and three buttons included in your design!
Here's what I did:

The image is one from Fairy Dust studios - I was lucky to win a while back at Lexi's and this is one of the images I chose as I knew this challenge was coming up. I've coloured the image in promarkers and distressed around the edges with faded jeans DI, cut with a spellbinders die and mounted onto my card backed with LOTV Christmas Paper. The buttons and bow were then added as was the snowflake charm and the image was glittered.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
