Ribbon and Pearls

Hello there my friends.  I hope y'all are enjoying your Friday.  Kierstynne is getting ready to go to her great grandmother's for the night so it's almost time for me time.  I did manage to get a card done earlier today.

I tried my hand at making a new kind of bow for this card.  I love the way it came out.  It's very simple actually. You take a length of ribbon the size of the bow you want to make and glue the ends together.  Take another smaller length of ribbon and wrap it around the middle securing it in the back.  That's it.  How simple is that, right?

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope y'all have a great day.  God bless y'all.
