Embellishing bows

The name of this blog has really come to life these last two days with strong, persistent winds and I'm getting a  bit sick of it to tell the truth!  I guess they don't call it 'Windy Wellington' for nothing!  But this year we've been spoilt with very very little wind, a very mild wet, SNOW for the first time in donkeys' years, and the wettest October since the Captain Cook sailed into harbour all those years ago (that's 'poetic licence' by the way, it just has been rather wet underfoot lately...)

Any anyway on the bright side - we won the Rugby World Cup at the weekend - wohoo!!

Back to crafting:

I loved trying out securing a ribbon bow with a brad, once I figured out how to do it, it was quite easy really, and looks so effective!

Embellish your bows it what 365 Cards asks us to do today so I've embellished it with the brad and the lovely golden background paper, the bow wouldn't look quite the same on a plain background - and I'm aware I am pushing the boundaries just a little here! (They are asking for two embellishments...)

What I used:

A selection of Stampin' Up and DCWV papers and cardstock, SU ribbon, brad, stampset and ink.
