The theme for this weeks Magnolia vs. Stampavie challenge is 'Bows'. Perfect, I thought, I'll have a go at making a ribbon blossom following the tutorial I spotted at Splitcoast Stampers earlier in the week. Bev made a gorgeous one on her card but mine was an absolute disaster!! It just looked like a cat had got into my ribbon bag and created a knotted tangled mess. Maybe I should have posted a picture on here to give you all a good giggle but I'm really too embarrassed!
I'd kept the layout of my card simple as the bow was going to be the main feature but I settled on a simple bow with a charm instead. My Sarah Kay image is coloured with watercolour pencils, distress inks and H2O's, the paper is Karen Neuburger and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. I've used a sheet of the worded paper inside as well.
