Pretty in silk

It's my turn to post a weekly project, and this time I settled down for a good ole' bow. I realize that some of you may now say "boooring...", but this is just what I love most about ribbon! Ain't nothing like a perfect bow, and with the right ribbon it's certainly unbeatable!
Have you seen our wide selection of silk ribbon? No?? I truly recommend you to get one, and you'll fall in love instantly. Silk is soft and excellent to work with, and it has this gorgeous shimmery finish...
On my card, I used some silk ribbon in Rose.


Supplies: cardstock: DCWV; paper: Bella Blvd; stamp: Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink; ink: Versa Color (Fresh Green, Pinecone); Rose Silk ribbon; punch: Martha Stewart

I remember that some feedback that you left for us, about what you'd like to see in the future, was regarding the perfect bows. Have you ever wondered how to make them nice, round and "puffy"? Nothing simpler than this - just put two fingers inside each loop, once you tie the bow, and stretch them gently. That's all what the magic is about! :)
Thank you for visiting, have a lovely day!
