I have a really quick & easy card to share with you today. This funny little monkey is from Bugaboo Stamps and I think this is the first time I've ever used him. It took me all of 5 minutes to color the image and cut it out. The fussiest part was layering the scrap pieces of satin and mesh ribbon, and hand tying the bow.
Bows are my favorite way to add ribbon to any card because they are easy to grab from the stash - no measuring or wrapping, just pop it on and it's done! I do tie lots of bows at one sitting so that I have a good stash of them when I need them. I also tend to use white ribbon for the bows and that way I can 'dye' them any color I need. I do that with a marker, usually one I've used in coloring the image, so that the bow color matches the image.
