Just Us Girls #207

This weeks Just Us Girls challenge is a color challenge using Red, Brown, Kraft & Ivory.  There's a song that goes brown paper packages tied up with........okay, I know it's supposed to be string, but in this case, I'm using a stamp set from Flourishes to make a big red bow.  I started with  a piece of Kraft and used the Swiss Dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  I attached this to a piece of GKD Dark Chocolate cardstock and then to a GKD Ivory card base.  I stamped the bow and ribbon images onto a piece of GKD Blizzard patterned paper.  This was attached to card front.  I stamped a second bow and attached with 1/4" pop dots.  The tag was stamped with GKD Red Hot ink onto a piece of ivory cardstock and fussy cut.  The bells and candy cane was stamped on ivory cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  The bells were, also, colored with a Clear Star Sakura glitter pen and fussy cut.  This was attached to the card front with pop dots.
