Merry & Bright Bows

Hi all!  I'm continuing on my quest for Christmas cards.....the fact that Thanksgiving is next week has me a bit concerned a the height of my stack....

Today's card features a set I picked up earlier this year, but haven't had a chance to use yet, Holiday Bows from The Ton.  As I've mentioned before, I'm really not great at multi-step stamps, so I'm wary of purchasing them, but this one is definitely on the forgiving side, and I just LOVE how realistic these bows look.  There is so much dimension to them!

I went with a non-traditional color palate using Altenew inks (Rock Collection and Sea Shore sets).  

For the sentiment, I used WPlus9's Be Merry set.  The pop of red from the banner (colored with Copics) really gives it the Christmas feel I think.  Incidentally, this is my go-to red combination, I use it all the time (R22 Light Prawn, R24 Prawn, and R29 Lipstick Red).

That's all for me today...halfway to Friday!
