Inspirations Colour Challenge #14

This week has been a busy one, with me needing lots of nanna naps to recover from the excitement of the Close to My Heart night and also returning to work this week after 2 weeks on holidays. So I've just managed to get this card done in time for Makeesha's colour challenge.

I always admire how neatly some people can tie various types on bows. I read this tutorial by Pine on making granny and square knots. I really wanted a square knot for this card but somehow I think I managed a granny knot instead. Hehe! Oh well, it's still a know of some sort. What is your favourite knot/bow? Have you come across some other good tutorials on this subject?

I'm not sure how clear it is in the photo but I have used some cute little pink rhinestones in the centre of some of the small flowers and a larger rhinestone on the big flower.

Here are the colour for this week's challenge:

And here is my card:


Cardstock and Ink - Pretty in pink, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White
Stamps - Baroque Motifs, Basic Phrases
Accessories - Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon, pink rhinestones


  1. Hi Nicole, I love your card, that layout is so gorgeous. It's all so pretty.
    Sally :)

  2. Just beautiful Nicole! I love that Baroque Motifs. If you got to Kristina Werners website, she has a great video tutorial on how to tie knots and bows.
    Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks so much for playing! Love Keesh x
