Pretty Bows

Hi Everybody,

This week the ladies in my Card Class added some pretty bows to their cards and we used a 250 gsm card from the Papermill Direct  throughout

We used the  Sue Wilson Classic and Lattice 3-D bows and layered the two together

There is a whole selection of Sues' designs  available to you from   JGD Crafts

Both of these cards are lovely but once again they have gone for completely different color schemes

This time Mary has gone for the darker colors and Brenda has gone for the pale ones ... it's usually the other way round.

Mary has chosen the flowers that match the dots in the background paper and Brenda has gone for those that match the tiny bees on her paper.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts ... and don't forget that WOC have very kindly put together some starter packs which have flowers of  different sizes in them at a  really good price.

The flowers have been sparkled with Glitter Magic  to give an extra special look.

I think both cards look good and my ladies are doing really well with what they achieve each week.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
