lili of the valley cupcakes

Normally we use  printed  papers and stamp and colour an image , today I've done it the other way round.
My background papers are stamped using inky doodles fabulous fabric stamps . I used whisper purple ink and black memento for the stitching. The image is a lili of the valley pre coloured image , it was just lilac and white so I used a yellow promarker and also on the ribbon on my little tag.
The sentiment is a woodware stamp , part of a set with a floral stamp called modern spray (worth buying just for the great sentiment I think). To do my flat bow I make 2 holes with the largest hole punch on my cropadile , feed the ribon through the back and cross over , then feed it through the front again , then cut to the required lenght . I like the way it looks , not to bulky and you only use a small amount of ribbon.

challenges entered :
lilies little fairies : purple and yellow
polkadoodles : the colour purple
crafty sentiments : show us stitching
totally papercraft :anything goes

well the sun is shinning today , hence the good pics of my card . Got a young couple viewing the house tomorrow so fingers crossed.
Have a lovely weekend and happy crafting. janex

Really feeling the love for those fabric stamps and your bow is gorgeous. I remember seeing it done that way once before but had forgotten all about it. I struggle with bows so I'll have to have a go at this.
Super card Jane. Have a lovely weekend.
