LIM - Thank You

I am just getting this in under the wire. I have been wanting to go back and play with the divas at Less Is More. I have missed the last two weeks and I didn't want to miss a third.

This week their challenge is buttons or bows or  both. I used both. Putting bows on my work is one my my favorite embelishments. I was at Michael's with a friend and they had these fabulous ribbons on sale for half off and I just couldn't resist this beautiful pink gingham ribbon. I should have bought all the spools, but alas I only bought one. Guess I'll have to go back.

I needed to send a thank you card off to a friend and I think CAS card I think will be perfect. I hope you think so too!

CAS-Thank-You


Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day!
Theresa

Love your fab bow in the pink gingham. Really pretty silhouette. x

P.s. Thanks for your comments on my post - In the Pink with Circle Circus, sorry I forgot to mention that it was a Stampin' Up! stamp set. I'm a demonstrator in the UK for Stampin' Up! so most my supplies are from them.
The bow is really easy to make it consists of strips of ribbon attached into loops with a smaller loop for middle.
Hope that makes sense if not e mail me directly ails300@btinternet.com and I'll try to explain better. x

Stunning Theresa! The simple black image and sentiment is set off beautifully by the gingham ribbon and button embellishment.

Oh my! I Love this CAS child silhouette card. I love the touch of pink!

I wonder, when you went back did they still have any of the ribbon? Whenever I do that they're sold out! I hope you have better luck :)
What a cute button, and I love the curtsy!
