IBSIC #46 & IBS Blog Hop

Hello my friends,

I have a card to share with you for this week's Inspired by Stamping Challenge #46 & February's Challenge Bows:


My card:

The card base is Crumb Cake and the pretty patterned papers are from The Lake House Collection from Kaisercraft.  The image is from The Craft's Meow Butterfly Kisses.  I added a doily and a light green cardstock behind it.  The sentiment (Vintage Frames) and the flower on the bow are from the IBS Store.  Lastly, I made a beautiful bow for my card that I learned from Joanna's bow tutorial! It's a bit hard to see because I used brown ribbon (it looks really pretty in person!).

A couple of months ago, I asked my hubby to make me a bow maker, but I only knew how to make one style, which is very different from Joanna's bows.  I know I will be using my bow maker more often now!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
