Hello everyone and HAPPY SATURDAY....boy what a gorgeous day it is here in California. Today I want to share a few challenge cards and one exciting new template just released from the Cutting Cafe called BOW TIE - RIBBON TEMPLATE - CUTTING FILE...
This bow tie is so fun to work with. It is perfect for making matching paper ribbons and bows for your cards and other projects. It comes in several different sizes for layer.
This first project shows how I used the ribbon on a gift box. The scallops is also part of the set.

I also used the following Cutting Cafe sets on this box: ALL OCCASION TAG SET and THE 8 BY 5.5 INCH BOX WITH DIVIDERS....There is also a special going on until Sunday night with these sets here for that.

 Up next I decided to enter the CRAFTY RIBBONS CHALLENGE #22, CLEAN AND SIMPLE CARDS Again I used the BOW TIE template for the little bow on the t...The sentiment is from the FEB 14 set.  Be sure to check out what the other people did....they all rock.
This next 50 SHAPED CARD I played along with CAS-ual Fridays #58 where you had to use PINK as your main focus but keep it simple...UGH...I probably went a bit overboard on the simple. I also used the BOW TIE template for the yellow and white bow.
 AND finally here is a little project using some fun ScrapnFonts items...the long sentiment rose is from a set called FLOWER WORD ART I also used the


from the Cutting Cafe.

Have a great weekend everyone and be sure to check out all the new stuff from the Cutting Cafe and if you have time play along over at the challenge sites...HUGS
