Merry Monday #144 - Bows

Hello friends.  Playing along with the Merry Monday challenge today and adding a bow to my card.



Used a Spellbinders embossing folder and a piece of Tim Holtz Kraft-Core core'dinations cardstock for the wreath and then lightly sanded it to bring out the kraft color.  For my bow, I dyed a piece of seam binding ribbon with Soft Suede re-inker and some water (so it wouldn't be so dark), and then tied it up with some gold cord, jingle bells, a tiny tag, and some twine.  I also added a few champagne colored pearls to the wreath and tag to add a bit of bling.  This was actually a pretty easy card to do, and I really like how shabby vintage, but elegant it turned out! :0)

Make sure you check out all the other gorgeous cards in the gallery and from the design team over at the Merry Monday site.


Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
