Ribbons and Bows

We have a lovely challenge this week over on the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown all you have to do is add some Ribbons AND Bows to your Christmas cards

Here is my card

My poinsettia has been heat embossed with white embossing powder and then coloured using my Stamin' Write markers. I used some Kraft coloured ribbon and tied my bow using the fork technique - Louise showed me how but I'm sure there are Youtube videos to show you how too - Louise always brings a fork along with her to the workshops now!
Here's a peek inside

Stamps: Christmas Blessings
Inks: Versamark, Crumb cake

  1. I love kraft, red and white; your card is simply beautiful! That's a sweet bow too (I've seen the fork technique).

  2. This is stunning, really love that stamp set. You have obviously got the hang of the fork bows, this one is perfect and I think I might nee to get some of that kraft coloured ribbon!
