Hi everyone.  Today I have another Birthday Card for my stash featuring a gorgeous Really Reasonable Ribbon bow.  

I’m really going to try to stay ahead of schedule this year so I can send cards that will arrive on or [gasp] before the actual day……

I let the one pretty piece of butterfly design paper from Recollections dictate the color palette.  You can see it peeking out of the upper left square of paper.  I love this paper and have it in several colors.
The card design is based on Deconstructed Sketch #134.
It’s really a pretty basic card.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from JustRite Stampers in black and cut and layered with Spellbinders Circle Dies.  You can see a little dimension with the cute little Martha Stewart butterfly punches.  I attached them with a little strip of 1/8″ Scor-Tape.
Here is a close-up of my pretty double loop bow from Metal Gray Checkerboard Satin
I made this gorgeous bow with my Bow-it-All lickety-split.  I added the pretty Turquoise Sweetheart Blossom to the center.
I find that simple little double or triple-loop bows are my favorite.  They look great and add just the right touch.
Challenges I’ve entered this card in:
Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Are you prepared for all your upcoming January and February birthdays?? 
I AM.   πŸ™‚
