BIG FAT BOWS......AND SUCH....

So the "challenge" for today over at the SUO blog....is RIBBONS AND BOWS.....okay, so that's really not a "challenge" for me, it's a much greater challenge for me to try and make a card WITHOUT a bow, or some form of ribbon.  But the challenge is for the players, not for the designers, so I made a card with a big fat bow.......so what else is new??  To me a card is not really a card until the bow is attached. :) THIS is a TRIPLE DECKER bow....where you just take 3 pieces of ribbon all the same length and tie your bow with all 3 at once and then sort of pull them apart and it makes one honkin' huge, happy bow! (the best kind!!)  I used our new set called Flower Shop, embossed in white on pink pirouette cardstock and then did some shading with a sponge dauber and cut them out.  I made my leaves from that same flower, just made them pear pizazz.  Add some texture with the big shot, and some polka dots for good measure, and voila, another card with a big fat bow....Come on, play along.......who can resist a card with a big fat bow??? Happy Tuesday everyone!! Until next time........Karen

It's a lovely card. It's not a Karen card without at least a single bow:-)

I just discovered you, Karen and love your style, after looking over your blog. It is, what I am discovering, mine too. Bows are such fun...but mine are not yet as nice and perfect as yours. LOL From 1 yr to 28 years....maybe I'll improve. LOL Thanks for sharing your art.
