Beautiful card... Just added to favorites!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
I'm posting your instructions on how to make the bow so I don't forget... :O)
allee's bow instructions: The bow is threaded through holes made with a double slot punch. Have you done the one where you insert the ribbon from the top and then thread the ends of the ribbon back through? Well, to create this look, instead of inserting the ends back through, you push the center of the tail back through and pull up as much as you want to make the loops on each side. I use about 8 inches of ribbon and I push it through with the blade of my scissors. Then you finish off by pushing the ends up through the holes and adjusting them to the position you want before trimming them off. This is a pretty tight fit through the holes. I hope this is somewhat clear. It does better with organdy but as you can see on my card, it can be done with grograin as well.
