Freshly Made Sketches #42 - "Life is a Matter of Moments"

I am leaving it to the last minute for the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  I have been trying for 2 days to make a card for this challenge I was not happy with what was coming out.  I decided to go simple with a colour scheme of Whisper White and Soft Suede.

Stamp set used is Elements of Style and the Whisper White cardstock was embossed with the Square Lattice and Finial Press embossing folders.

I had some fun making the bow for this card.  I tried the technique of using the heat gun on the ribbon to slightly shrivel it.  The first two goes I put too much heat on the ribbon and it melted, I worked out less heat is more, dah.

Side view to show the inside stamped in the corner with the Elements of Style stamp in Soft Suede on Whisper White.
