Hi! I just finished this card using the second sketch of January's Viva la Verve. Oh my goodness, that awful bow took 20 minutes to make! I can make a regular bow with my bow easy, but for some reason those darn seam binding bows give me so much trouble! Everyone says they are so easy, the seam binding is so forgiving, not for me. I love the look, but just can't pull it off. I have spent hours practicing only to end up with something that I'm still not happy with.

Both the sentiment and the flower stamped on the background are from Verve's Love's Flower set.

Enough rambling, I'm going to start on a new card, I have a new stamp that I am itching to ink up.
