Animal Talk Thank You

Who hasn't wondered what animals say when they talk?
I just had to get this stamp set and the first card I made was a thank you for a few of my customers last month.  I decided I needed to use up some of my Pumpkin Pie Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper.  I added the Basic Black Chevron Ribbon in an adorable bow.

I have to tell you a secret... I wasn't (and am still not)the best at making bows.  Sometimes I have to make a bow several times before it looks "perfect".  In this case I wrapped the ribbon "base" around the card first.  I tied a knot with a second piece of ribbon (onto the first piece) and then made it into a bow.  Don't forget to "puff" up the bows using your closed scissors. 
As you can see on the left side, I roughed up the edges of the cat square.  If you are wondering how I did two colors?  I simply inked up the stamp with Pumpkin Pie and then used my Basic Black Marker on the tip of the tail and the cat's strips.
As you can see I used a different ribbon on this one... I ended up liking the Chevron ribbon better.

Come back tomorrow for some Stylin' Stampin' INKspriation!  I have a feeling you are going to LOVE it!
