Now, if you have arrived here from Ashley's Blog, then you are right on track.
If you want to start from the beginning, head over
to 3 Girl JAM.

For my project, I wanted to try something new.  I wanted to create a card
that showcases many of the beautiful 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon colors.
I honestly love to play with this ribbon!  It just screams FUN!!!
The only stamping I am using, is for the sentiment!

 I started with Kraft Cardstock.
I then used my watercolor paints to color the sentiment the same color as my bows.
The sentiments is from the Unity Stamp Co. - Love is the Tie Itty Bitty
by Authentique
 I stamped the sentiment onto cream colored card stock
then stamped it again over top of that using TH Distress Ink - Black Soot.
I love the effect this technique gives to your stamping and am sure
to try this over and over again.
I inked the edges of my sentiment tag with TH Antique Linen and
raised it up with 3DF foam squares.

I used my 3 Girl JAM Bow Maker
to create the double bows
and ABSOLUTELY LOVE how quick and easy
it was to make all 5 of them.
I simply hot glued the rhinestones to the center of each bow, used some Zots
to adhere each bow to the card,
and added some doodling with my White Gel Jelly Roll pen.

I used the following colors of 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon
Cherry Lipstick and Baby Girl
Witches Brew and Iris
Blue (from RW,&B June bundle) and Baby Boy
Mistletoe and Goblin Green
Sunflower and Daffodil

DON'T LEAVE YET!!!
Before you hop along, there is also a
Linky Party to join!
The only requirement is to link a
project with "Beautiful Bows"

Of course, any ribbon or bows are fine,
but we sure would love to see you use
3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon
if you have some!

After you finish hopping to all the Hop Stops,
head back to 3 Girl JAM
to link up your Beautiful Bows!!!

Now you will hop on over to Zeni's Blog to see her Beautiful Bows!
