Its the July card challenge over at the Ribbon Girl and all is being asked is to add a bow.
They are sponsored by Lili Of The Valley who will give the lucky winner a stamp of their choice from the LOTV catalogue and the Ribbon Girl who will give the winner a £10 voucher towards a spending spree in their online store.
For my card above I used a pre coloured and stamped image from Lili of the Valley, cut it into a tag shape and added a bit of glossy accents and glitter.
Its rubbish weather outside so I made a card to cheer me up using my current favourite stamp by Pure Innocence. I used Echo Park papers and used black glossy accent for the little girls wings and of course lots of machine stitching as always :)
