Big and Beautiful Bow!

Hi Everyone!

I usually try to do my Monday posts around 7AM-ish but had some issues today.

Before I get to my card, I would like to invite you to come play along in our latest Really Reasonable Ribbons Ramblings challenge. The theme is "Read, White, and Pink Plus Ribbon". Tis the season and I think we are all hittin' those colors so why not join in?
You could win some goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon and our sponsor Wild Orchid Crafts!
CLICK HERE for the challenge deets!  ;)

This card is not for the challenge. I posted my challenge card HERE.
But....I wanted to show you what a pretty bow the 1 1/4" Silk ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon makes.
So full and beautiful! I used Celery Green but here is a link to all of the silk Bonnie has to offer.




I used another one of the stamp sets that I illustrated called "Sentimental Flowers" available @ Clear Dollar Stamps. The flower and leaves were cut with the really cool SVG files they now offer (for just a dollar) and my Cricut!


The paper is Heavenly White from The Paper Temptress and the jewels are Gradient Gem Stickers from Creative Charms. The beautiful brad is their Pink Vintage Pearl brad. I also used my "Dots" Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Thanks so much for dropping by! :)
Hugs,
True :D
