Add a bow at Creative Craft Cottage challenge

Good morning all my friends and visitors.

Welcome to another challenge at Creative Craft Cottage This fortnight challenge #40, requires you to add a bow. Use anything you like and make a bow....Now that is so easy.

'Badge -'
The sponsor for this challenge is Ppinky Dolls and all the DT have used one of their images...Waiting for him.

We would love you to come over and see the lovely inspirational cards made by the ladies, but then we ask you to come and join in the fun, and there is even a prize for 3 images from Ppinky dolls

Here is the card I made for the challenge:

I used paper from one of the paper blocks for the background. I then used a stencil and some texture paste to create a brick wall onto  white cardstock. When it was dry I went over it with distress inkpads.

The image I coloured very lightly and then cut it out and mounted onto the brick wall.

The flower border was cut with a Marianne Designs die from patterned paper. I added glitter and beads to this.

Finished with a bow
