To make the bow I cut a strip of 1/2" x 8" piece of DSP and folded the ends inward to form loops. Then I used linen thread through the button to secure the loops of the paper bow. The silver frame is detailed with a couple mini brads to match.

Pretty Paper Bow
How about a quick card with an autumn feel for today's post? I started with the leaf print from the Orchard Harvest DSP pack and let the paper direct the design of the card. I glued the leaf panel of DSP to a base of Old Olive card stock and then ran the layers through the Framed Tulips TIEF. I included a light sanding to the raised images for added flair. The focal panel features a heat embossed "just for you" window frame in a Silver Flourish Frame. It's tricky to see but there is a gingham panel punched to fit the silver frame and back all the focal bits. My favorite part of the card is the paper bow and wooden button.
Happy Friday, Elizabeth
