All Tied Up With a Bow for Pals Paper Arts

I'm honored to be the Featured Artist for this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge! And the challenge is.....Clean & Simple tied up with a Bow!

I chose the new stamp set Eat Chocolate available in the new Occasions Mini catalog. I love the sentiment because really, good friends and chocolate rate up there pretty high on the "happy" list of many women. I know they do for me!

This card is quick and easy; colorful but with not too much detail. I love the crisp look the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder gives the pieces. The 1 1/4" Daffodil Delight ribbon makes the perfect bow for this card!
  • HINT: How much ribbon does it take to make a bow? Wrap your ribbon 2 1/2 times around the card. That's how much you will need to tie a bow around your card.

Thanks for stopping by! Before you leave, I'd love to know what you thought of today's project! And make the most out of Stampin'Up!s biggest promotion of the year, Sale-a-bration. Click here for details.

Stop by Pals Paper Arts to see what the PPA Design Team came up with. I'm sure we will be "bowed" over. Ok enough of that! Give the challenge a try yourself and see what you can come up with!

God Bless,

Martha, I love the bow you used on your card -Thnaks for the hint on how to measure the ribbon the right size for the card :-)

OYE, I totally missed the CAS part of the challenge this week LOL! Awesome card Martha, love this color combo, theres something about navy and yellow that sings spring to me and we are buried up here in snow, so the thought is wonderful!

Love your color choices! Not only is your card delightful, it's nice to see the underused (at least in my card making LOL!) Concord Crush on display. Love that gorgeous bow.
