Just Add Ink 184 - Just Add Bows

Hi Everyone,

How are we this Friday?  I'm good, been to the Dentist this morning for my regular check.  The good news is today was relatively painless, the bad news is I have to go back for some fillings.  Yuck!

There's a great challenge at Just Add Ink this week brought to us by Trish to Just Add Bows.  The paper variety are so popular at the moment so that's what I'm making today.


I've used my Extra Large oval punch with some of the gorgeous Winter Frost Designer Series Paper pack.  This is one of the foil sheets from the pack for my bow.  I've kept this card simple and elegant making a square card, so that it looks like a gift.



Here is a closeup of that bow.

I've used Bermuda Bay and Whisper White cardstock today with the Winter Frost paper pack.  I really like the colour combinations in these papers.  You can pack these cards quite quickly and they look so effective.


Thanks for stopping by today to view my card.  Please feel free to add a comment.  I love to hear from you.  Have a great day.
