Mercy's Sketch 44

I got a few minutes..around midnight (!) to finish a card I started yesterday morning. This is for Mercy's challenge 44. Overall size is 4.25 square.


I triple looped the bow, ran a few stitches through the center to gather it, then tied a separate piece of ribbon over the stitches.

Made the stick pin from inexpensive pearl stick pins and beads from Michael's.


Supplies:
Paper - Making Memories Sabrina
Ink - Versafine black
Accessories - glue on facets, sheer ribbon, beads, pearl stick pin, Spellbinders oval dies



Pin It!
