Big Bows!

I have been following the CARDs blog for awhile now, and I think one other time I made a card for one of their challenges. However, I never got around to actually sending it in! Well this time around, I knew that I could make a Christmas card for this challenge: big ol’ ribbon bows!

So here's what I came up with:


  OccasionallyI have to pull out neglected stamps like Guide Lines. I used Liquid Pearls to add some interest to the pattern. And, after adding the ribbon and the scallop to the tag, I realized I need one more red (you know that whole thirds thing). So I colored in the air plane - just the thing I needed to be satisfied.

Stamps: GuideLines - Papertrey Ink
Ink: VersaMark
Accessories: Liquid Pearls, Scallop Punch
Tag: Jolly by Golly - Cosmo Cricket
AND A BIG OL' BOW



By the time you read this, this challenge will be over! But I'm sure they will have a new challenge on the blog ... so go check it out.
