I needed to make a quick birthday card for a male member of my family and he is a no nonsense, no frills kinda guy. So no little extras on this card. The ribbon is actually stretching it a bit but I'm hoping that will be acceptable since it is a simple bow. I just love the picture of the sweet little bird and berries. I started with a white pearl and used an alcohol marker to make it match the berries. I love that you can take white ribbons and pearls and color them to match your project. So I keep white pearls and white ribbons stocked and ready to go.
It's cold here this morning...32 degrees and the wind is whipping. Snow flurries are forecast with no accumulations expected. Winter is here!
