Another weekend sketch challenge #103 card

I cut the papers and embossed the centre piece yesterday when I started the other card for this challenge. I kept this card simpler çause I wanted to showcase the ribbon and the brad I made.
Inspiration for this card came from Beate's weekend sketch challenge as well as the card DT member, Laurie made for the challenge. Of course, my bow is not a patch on Laurie's but hey I've got to start somewhere.

I took the opportunity to use some new stash, Papermania's make your own brads. This one is using the small Antique Gold brad. I punched a bell from the dp I used, Graphic 45, put the sticky fix on first, added the punchie, then the clear dome on top. I was pretty impressed with it actually. I purchased this set at Sue and Robyn's shop in Sarina called Papercraft Central.

The ribbon is some more of my Townsville shopping spree, lol, I had a wonderful time in that shop. It's called Scrapbook Shenanigans. Great place for ribbon.

The stamp is from Stamp It and I gold embossed it on smooth cream c/s then layered with brushed gold and red, all cut out with my nesties. Gold pearls in the corner finished it off.
Thanks for the wonderful comments I have received on my cards. I so much appreciate them and love reading them all.
I'm off to finish cooking the tea.
