Merry Monday with a Bow

It's Merry Monday time.

Nina chose our challenge this week.


I do love a pretty bow.

And I had some pretty linen ribbon left from Christmas.


I also had this already embossed piece stashed away so this was super quick and easy!

I even used a bit of Dazzling Details on the season's greetings.  See the sparkle?

I added a few pearls for a little extra elegance.

The Design Team has some pretty bows to show you 
so you might want to go over and check them out.

Then tie, punch, diecut, or stamp a bow and come join us
at Merry Monday.

I'm so glad you stopped by.

Enjoy!

Elegance is often found in simplicity. Your card has all of those elements and that bow seals it. The Embossing along with the pearls on this card is perfect. Bravo!

I'm not very good at using wider ribbon on cards but this is a perfect way, with just the simple embossing folder under it and a few embellishments! Great idea! And lovely card!

I really like this design with the big big bow across your card. Big ribbon intimidates me but this is a great way to show it off.
