Thank You Kindly

Oh, I am so happy to be back to share a card with you again.  I made this one for the new sketch at Waltzing Mouse.  I used some old KandCompany paper called Classic K.  The papers are so pretty and shabby in this pack.  I think Michales still sells it.  I made what I call a clean/shabby card.  You like that?  Hehe.
 I used a metal brad flower, but took the brad out and replaced it with one of my Prima roses.  I love all the scrolls in the WM stamps.  They are so elegant!
                             
 I love the way this satin ribbon makes big loopy bows.  I like my loops to be on the smaller side with shorter tails.  I think the whole bow thing is preference.  What is yours?  I actually have two different ways I make my bows depending on what look I want.  I usually have one tail going up and one down.  If I want them both going down, I tie a Martha Stewart bow...that is what I call it because I learned it from her show.

Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/ Kraft, Rustic White
DP: K and Company
Stamps: Waltzingmouse
Ink: Memento/Rich Cocoa, Memento/
Other: Metal Flower, Prima flower, pearls
Thanks for stopping by,
Heather

I love your bows and would love to know your secrets. I too love the smaller, yet loopy bows. I have always shied away from them because I can't tie them properly OR I hate to send them through the mail.

BTW-Is this Aqua Mist ribbon? I just ordered my first PTI ribbon (in Aqua Mist) because I love the way satin ties!
