Elegant Fifth Avenue Floral

Hi! Here is the second card that we stamped at my stamp club tonight. It's so simple, but yet so elegant. I have seen so many ideas with this stamp set, Fifth Avenue Floral, that I just had to order it! This layout was inspired by many that I saw on SCS and on Stamper's Showcase (for demos only). The colors are Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Real Red, and Whisper White. Great color combo!
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Real Red, Sahara Sand, Basic Black
Paper: Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Real Red
Accessories: Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots

Thanks to my wonderful stamp club ladies for a fun night! And thanks Kelly for the extra cardstock! I appreciate it!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Hi Karen,
I follow your your work. Hey, how did you make the bow on your Fifth Ave Floral card? TFS.

Cindy, the bow is in 3 pieces. The first piece is just wrapped around the cardstock. The second piece is made into a circle with a mini glue dot. Then the third piece is a short piece wrapped around the second piece with a mini glue dot. That piece is then adhered to the first piece with another mini glue dot. Clear as mud? I believe Stampin' Up! had a tutorial in one of their Stampin' Success'.
