Sugar Mill Gracious Hostess Card for Whimsical Wednesdays

I tried making 4 different cards before I finally found one that actually worked with this bow. I tied it around one card then decided it was too elegant for the feel of the card. So off it came and I started again, three more times!

I knew it would finally look right somewhere! I love the stickers from Melissa Frances that look like old advertisements, signs and labels.

I stretched the sketch a bit but I think it works. I didn’t manage the brads in the corners though. I hope you will have fun with this week’s sketch. Use DDsc25 when uploading to a online gallery and don’t forget to drop by Whimsical Wednesdays to include your DIRECT Link in the Mr. Linky list!

I see why it would be tricky to use this type of ribbon - although I love it.  I really like the sticker too.
