Mo's dp2 challenge dt

Hi there for the second time today, we have a new challenge on Mo's challenge blog, set for us by uber talentented Pat, she wants us to use "buttons and bows".
For my card i am using Flower girl available at Mo's new store colored with my copics, listed below.
i gotta admit that bows are not my forte i sure gotta find a REALLY  good tutorial and do something drastic to improve my bows.  i hear you girls all saying "bow easy" or "bow majig", i have those, no improvement, i seem to be all thumbs, slow co-ord i geuss.
copics:  R89, R59, R39, R37, R85, R83, R81
skin:  E21, E00, E000             hair: E25, E31, E53
shadows on the dress:  C3, C00       touch of green G85, G82, G40
Marianne creatables: new tags
Paper and embellies all from stash, Miscellaneous:  star dust stickles all over her dress
Please pop by the challenge blog and see what all the talented dt ladies have done to inspire you with your buttons and bows

  6. There is not one thing wrong with your bows here honey! They are simply gorgeous! This entire card is so all the 'sweet' details you added, like the pretty flowers and the delightful buttons tied with ribbon. Your coloring and glittah are fabulous! You dared to use a deep red and it didn't even bleed!!! This is gorgeous!

Not sure what you're talking about there...except that maybe you'd be fun to watch when you're struggling with all 10 of your thumbs! LOL! That could be a photo opportunity! hehehe! Hugs. Pat

  9. So pretty! I love the way you've made her dress sparkle, and the colors are gorgeous!

  10. Lovely card. Love this image and how you colored her.

  11. Let me tell you Paola - I hate that bow easy - I mean I hate it. Becca had a wooden gadget on her blog that she made - Art made me one like it and I watch Becca's tutorials and I love it. Next time we skype I will have to show you my contraption to make wonderful bows. You will love it - This little image is so sweet - I love her!
