I love this paper

Hello sweet bloggers,
Thanks for the kind comments on my last card... and for the suggestions on how to fill the empty space at the bottom. 
I have been busy making cards for the bazaar on May the 14th, so busy that I could not blog yesterday. Here is my card to show you for today and much as I love the colours on this paper, I am not sure if the double bow looks nice. You know when I make general cards they do really well so I went for it - just paper with no stamping. It made up for not using stamps because I took loads of time taken to get the bow done properly - these double bows can be trying. In retrospect, I may add a few pearls or rhinestones on the paper to make it prettier.

I will enter this card in the following challenges:

I must go and do some visiting now.

Much love,

LOVE this card, AND your delightful bow. Those double ribboned bows are definitely "trying", Monica, and you have done a lovely job. I often must remind myself that handmade cards can be cute, lovely, awesome, pretty, darling -- any of those things -- and still have mistakes on them. They are, after all, handmade with Love. Your papers here feel very "Eastern" or "Indian" to me, and I am always attracted to that style of artwork. Lovely! hugs, de
