Elegant Lines

I am loving my Big Shot at the moment!    Well that's nothing new, but I have been using it a lot lately.   I can't imagine being without it in fact.

Today's creation is inspired by a card on page 150 of the current IB&C.   Everytime I see that card it pleases me.  It could be colour combination or the balance in the elements, but what I like a whole lot is the texture.   And that is all Big Shot!

Anyway, without CASEING the IB&C's my version

Supplies used:
Stamps:  Perfect Punches (I'm getting my money's worth out of this set too)
Cardstock:  Sahara Sand, Marina Mist & Night of Navy
Ink:  Night of Navy
Big Shot, Elegant Lines embossing folder & Floral Fusion Sizzlits Die
Scallop Oval Punch
5/8" grosgrain ribbon in Night of Navy
Basic Jewels - pearls

The ribbon is a formal bow - very easy to do.   Simply take your desired length of ribbon and fold each of the ends back and glue together to form a loop.  Take another small length of ribbon (I used the same colour) and wrap it around the centre (perpendicular to the loop) to flatten the loop, adhere with snail.   I then stuck the bow on top of a piece of ribbon that I'd already stuck to the cardstock.

Enjoy stamping today.
