Beautiful Gardens

Keep admiring those big floofy bows done with seam binding... still have no idea "how-to" do them, was messing around with this one, tied it in knots a dozen times finally gave up and just looped loops and hand stitched it with a needle, and it was kinda flat... so parked this snip of a bloomer type style ribbon flower on top. This is an color combo challenge at scs with Certainly Celery, Blushing Bride & so Saffron colors. the card base is bazzill though, and so its slightly paler then the saffron on the sentiment mat. These are newer Impression Obsession stamps ( i think) well lets put it this way new since last Christmas time.. They are stamped with versafine vintage sepia on Neenah classic cream then distressed with various inks. the mini brads are from Lasting Impressions. It's 6" square in real life. those stick pins were bought at a yard sale and I think i have one left so have to find some of those and make more I guess because I do like how they look poked into something.

Well, I like your "poofy" bows and can't tell anything wrong with them, Stacy. I still can't make them either. So, we are in the same boat.

I love those stick pins, too!!

I love the look this card. One of my favs' Gonna. Pin it!
