Red & White Card

I'm here with another card! I'd like to tell you a little about my style...I like simpler cards because I actually like to post them to people. When there is too much stuff on them they are too thick unless I put them in a box first and by then it costs a fortune to post it...lol. 

I also like to use lots of papers and accents that I print from my computer. I use lots of digital scrap kit and papers.

The card above came about as a theme for a card swap I belong to here in the UK. It was a crimson/red/pink theme. It all started with the red gingham ribbon and went from there. I made the big bow from 3 ribbons, 2 buttons stacked and white thread.

SUPPLY LIST:
White card base from The Paper Mill
Red generic cardstock
Flower and Dotted papers designed by me in Photoshop, printed with Epsom printer.
Gingham ribbon was free gift in a crafting magazine.
All other ribbons from Ribbon Oasis
3 mini sentiment clear stamps by MSE (My Sentiments Exactly)
red ink
white embroidery thread.

CHALLENGE ENTRIES:
Paper Take Weekly - used their sketch
Crafting When We Can - monochrome
Try It On Tuesday - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Focus on the ribbon
