Pretty Bows all in a Row (OK, I lied, it's a Circle)

Morning all.  We have a new challenge over at Cardz4galz this morning.  I hope it appeals to your creativity as much as my Autumn challenge.  You all kept me very busy on that one and I loved the variety and standard.

This week our challenge is 'Pretty Bows'.  We want to see bows on your projects please.  

I wasn't sure where to go with this as I find bows a bit bulky and so I don't use them often.  Inspiration struck when I was looking through my dies.  I've had this wreath die for ages but I was never very pleased with it when I cut it from coloured card stock.  This time I decided to cut it from card that I'd blended with distress inks, to give it more interest, and it more than exceeded my expectations.

The die (Xcut - I think) came with all sorts of fancy bits to decorate it but I chose to just use the large bow from the set and then used a small bow from another die to decorate it.  I flung a few gems at it and that was that. What do you think?

Please pop over and join in the fun.  See if you can convert me to using bows more often.

Thanks for reading.

  2. Dawn - This is really a pretty card and I LOVE that wreath die. The extra sparkle you added with the gems and the glitter paper is just the right amount to bling to make this card shine! Nice job!
