House of Cards Challenge "Add a Bow"

Hello everyone,

I decided to enter this challenge with a card I just made for a friend's niece.


This young lady is a TV News producer, so I incorporated that theme into her birthday card with a "News Flash" sign, camera and film tape.


I also made a Keepsake Box for the card to complement it's design and to protect it. Majority of the cards I make come with a keepsake box.


I made a quadruple bow with seam binding ribbon and red scrapbooking twine. I decorated the bow with a jumbo crystal to give it some extra elegance.


Happy Birthday tag is attached to the bow with scrapbooking twine and it sits loosely in the front of the card....


I have wanted to make a retro look card for quite some time and I am glad that I used this opportunity to do so...
I am very much pleased how this card turned out and I hope that recipient will like it too.
Happy 4th of July, have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by...
Samra
