52CCT: Ribbon & Bows

Do you like using ribbons and bows to create?  Well, I don't like making bows, but I'm getting better at it as I practice!  This week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown we'd like to see all your holiday creations garnished with ribbon and at least one bow!

Here's the challenge~

My card~

Details~





I've used a darling image by Pure Innocence, a sentiment by Papertrey Ink, rhinestones by Prima, patterned paper by DCWV, liquid pearls by Ranger, glitter gel pens by Sakura, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up! (yes--even that "punch" for my sentiment--see how to do it HERE).

This is my first time using a stamp like this that wasn't digital.  I bought it at my local craft store after Christmas at a steal and it was sitting there sad and unused--I had to play with it!  I adore paper piecing and so I did her coat and hat up with some liquid pearl accents and glitter gel pens.  I thought this image was great because not only do I have ribbon and a bow on my card, but the image has packages tied up with ribbons and bows as well!  I was really inspired by the colors in the inspiration photo as well--it got translated into this card!

Thanks for stopping by--please do join us!  And please also stop by and say hello to the other gals on the DT--they've got gorgeous creations to share with you as well!  Merry stamping, friends! :)
