Ribbons and bows

Hello lovely people,

Since I have also posted a tutorial today I will try to keep this post short and sweet!  We have a new challenge at Totally Gorjuss and our nice easy theme this week is...
Bows
I love to use ribbon and twine on my cards so this was never going to be a problem for me :-)
I thought that using 4 squares of card to make a patchwork-ish background was a really good idea until I had to line them all up; I think I got them straight and even in the end!


I kind of kept with the theme idea for the image as I have used Ribbons Fairy from Saturated Canary.  The super talented Krista has just released a whole load of utterly gorgeous fairies and I think I might have to buy the rest before long!


Card recipe;
DP: Maja Designs - Vintage Spring Basics
Fancy edge: Martha Stewart edge punch
Seam binding / pearls / button twine: Wild Orchid Crafts
Button: from stash

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/51 & R30
Hair: E42/43/44
Dress: BV0000/000/00/01
Wings: RV0000/000 & BV0000/000
Leaf: G40 & YG61/63 & G94


I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  Saturated Canary (winged things)
2.  Bunny Zoe (bingo - button/sparkle/pearls)
3.  Copic Marker Europe (favourite colours - lilac/green)
4.  'ABC' (lots of layers)

Please do head over to Totally Gorjuss to see what the rest of the Gorjussettes have created.
We are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl this week so show us your pretty bows for a chance to win :-)

Thanks for visiting,

Hugs,
Kat xx
