Bring Back Beautiful -Beauty of a Bow


Hi everyone!  Welcome to November's Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful challenge! A big shout out to everyone who played along in last month's challenge.  Check out the October True Beauties, they are featured on the Flourishes blog, each will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog! 

As we enter into the busiest time of the card making season, we want to see how you use beauty and artistry and wrap it up with a bow… with ribbon! You don’t have to create a bow, just show us your favorite way to add elegance to your cards or creations with ribbon. Link up your card for the Bringing Back Beauty challenge here (link to post) to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB04. You have until November 29th to enter! 
 
My card uses the amazing Flourishes set, Christmas Classics.  What stunning images in this set!  I used the Cardinal image and paired it with the classic Christmas papers from K&Company.  The card is made from the Glad Tidings card making kit!  My bow is a double bow made from May Arts Burgundy wrinkled ribbon.  I love the softness of this ribbon, making it a breeze to make double bows with!!  See the curly gold thread?  This is from the new line of Memory Thread by DMC -love it!  Comes in 18 colors!!  Perfect to enhance any bow!!
So, are you ready to Bring Back Beautiful?  Check out my fellow Beauty Girls and see what Beautiful Bows they created!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
