Big Bow!!

Good, no great, Friday morning friends!! Here's a quick card that I made last weekend.  I have been bitten by the 1.5" ribbon bug!! LOL  I couldn't resist this ribbon after seeing it in Courtney's Practicing Creativy store.  My friend, Laural, is a big  PC fan and let me buy some of this gorgeous ribbon from her as it was sold out at the time of our order.  She asked me what I was going to do with it.  I had no idea!  I've used wide ribbon before but discovered it's hard to tie!! This ribbon, however, is very thin and wasn't too bad.  It does take a lot of ribbon to tie it fully around the card.  I'm tempted to take it off this card and use it on other ones while I take their pictures!!  LOL  Definitely a card that has to be either hand delivered or put in a bubble envelope :)  The "thanks" was cut with a Cuttlebug die...some stitching, some buttons and you have a very quick, non stamped card :)  "Thanks" for stopping by...have you used wide ribbon?  What do you think?  I hope you have a lovely start to your weekend :)



What's in it?
paper: SU crushed curry, melon mambo, black, dcwv dp
accessories: may arts ribbon, stitching, cuttlebug "thanks" die, buttons

Oooh I love it! Your bow is gorgeous of course. Love the black contrast in your stitching sentiment and buttons. Beautiful touches and fab paper, oh and super fab ribbon. I'll hopefully be buying some more during the next release.
