Today's challenge at Raise The Bar is called "Let's Spring For It"! When I think of spring, I always think of Lilacs. I have two large lilac bushes outside my one living room window and when they are in bloom ... Mmmm ... what a beautiful fragrance flows through the room!! Hence, my card theme!I actually gave this card to my SIL for her birthday on Easter and now have to try and remember what all I used to make it. Actually, that shouldn't be too difficult because it's basically this lovely embossed K&Co designer paper, Stickles, sentiment stamp by Impression Obsession and this "oh so soft" silk ribbon I received as an RAK from Joan Fricker (Joan's Gardens).
Edited to add: The "perfect" bow was achieved by using the Bow Easy.
With the unexpected warm weather (80s) we've been having in N.E. Ohio, my lilacs are all in bud and I can't wait for them to bloom!!! I just hope we don't get a late frost and loose them!
