Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Ribbons and Bows

Hello!!! Today is a new challenge at Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge and our theme this week is "Ribbons and Bows".  I always use bows on my cards, so this was a breeze for me.

My very sweet friend Martine just got a brand new puppy and so this card is for her!!!! She got the cutest little black Cocker Spaniel and named it Shadow, so this is Martine and Shadow. tee hee.  The image is from Lily of the Valley called Swing Time.  I think it is very sweet. 

My papers are Melissa Frances and I have stitched all the edges.  To get the Martha Stewart punched edge around the oval I used this fantastic tutorial from Norma.  Then comes the fun part!!!!...Adding all the fun embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts!!!  Here is what I added:

Blue Gypsophilium

That's it for me today.  I have a card for you to see for tomorrow using a Sugar Nellie Manga.  I am still waiting to get my hands on those new stamps called Simply Sassy, but my DT package hasn't arrived yet. Whaaa!

Thank you for all the kind words!

Hugs, Dena
