For some reason I always think that I have more time than I actually do so to the rescue are the Sizzix embossing folder and the trusty Bow Easy. The cards came together in no time. I took the pictures with my phone because I wanted to share them with you quickly and my software with my camera can be pretty fussy at times, so I guess I am saying that I am sorry for the poor quality.
I may just send both cards because I can't decide which to send.
Here is the first one I made:
The paper and ribbon are from my stash and the Bow Easy came to my rescue for the bow. I cannot make a bow without this handy little tool. The pearls are from my stash too.
Here is the second card. I think it is more elegant and I used black not because I think she is old (I'll always be older than she is!) but just because I thought it looked pretty:
Again the paper, ribbon, and flower are from my stash along with the "crystal ribbon."
Thank you for looking and I hope you have a fabulous evening!
