Buttons or Bows

Where did that time go since the last Top Tip Tuesday challenge?
The Challenge this time is
Buttons or Bows
 and we are really lucky this time we have 2 Sponsors
Bugaboo Stamps and Whimsy Stamps

If you have trouble tying bows we have some great tips and links for you over at the challenge so check them out while your there!

My Tip is a simple one, Make your bow a different colour to your main ribbon pick out a little bit of colour from  your image to give it a pop of colour. I use the bunny ears bow method and it works everytime!

I have used this really cute House Mouse stamp and went for the Bows part of the theme I LOVE buttons and do use them but this time I wanted to use a bow and keep the design and C&S as possible.

The challenges I am entering:

House-mouse HMFMC190 - Anything goes and a option to CASE
Pile It On - Use 3 of Something - 3 different Ribbons
The Ribbon Girls - Must use ribbon – Going Green
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Flowers & Ribbon
Wags 'n Whiskers  - Ready for Spring
Simon Says Stamp Monday - Animals
Stamp and Create - Is it Spring yet?

hope you have a fab week

  1. I think I use bows more than buttons and I love to layer up my bows; your tip of using a contrasting colour is a great idea - must try that too!
    The purple and green look so good together on your card and the CAS design is brilliant :-)

    I hope you have a lovely day!

    Big hugs, Kat xx
