Scrappy Saturday Challenge #33

Welcome to Wee Memories' Scrappy Saturday Challenge #33: Bowtiful Ribbon Theme!
This week, you're playing for a bow maker from Charleston Scrapbook Company.  Be sure to check out all the details, for its use, on Jenny's blog.  Now, how about a little inspiration?
I started this card by adhering the punched, across its bottom edge, strip of red, polka dot, patterned paper near the bottom of the Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face, whose upper corners had been rounded, and the chocolate, text, patterned paper, just above it, before machine stitching white-threaded, zig-zag stitches between the two and white-threaded, straight stitches around their edges.
I, then, stamped the "THANK you" sentiment, above my papers, in Chocolate Chip ink...
and began wrapping my color-coordinating ribbons, around the card face, and tying them in bows.
A length of Baker's Twine, wrapped around the card face, three times, below the ribbons and above the zig-zag stitching, and laced through a winter-themed, chipboard button, before being tied in a bow, rounds out the bow quartet.
A little glitter, added to the red, polka dot, patterned paper, and ink distressing, given to the card face itself, complete the look.
My color combination was inspired by Cupcake's Creations' Create for Fun: Color Challenge #5.
Now, start playing with those ribbons, bloggers!  You have until 11:59 pm PST, on Friday, December 2nd, to play along.  Looking forward to seeing all of your bowtiful creations!
