Bows at LCI!

Good Morning!

I hope your week has started well. Its so cold here at the moment!  Can't complain though cos its lovely and sunny at the same time! 

We have a brand new challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink today, where did the last two weeks go!!  Anyway, our Sue has set our challenge today, she would like to see:


Sue really is the queen of bows so I wanted to make mine big and bold!  Here is my card:

I am very stingy with my ribbon most of the time, so I was breaking out into a cold sweat using this much ribbon on one card!!  I think I might just keep the card for myself!  The ribbon is of course from Stamping Up and took about 2 hours to get the bow right!

I have used a blue and brown colour combination again which I am really loving at the moment!  I have used Original Nikki, the sentiment is from Pollycraft and is perfect for Nikki don't you think!  I have used papers from Echo Park Candy Shoppe, Dots & Stripes, I love this pack, I have just bought some more in different colours.   I just added some glamour dust and pearls to finish off. 

Now don't forget that you can buy all stamps at half price until the end of January (does not include digital images).  So get on over there! 

When you have finished shopping hop on over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the Ladybugs, they are all awesome!

Have a great day.
