I’ve used the cute and fun Who’s Bad? from Digi Doodle Shop.They’ve been printed onto watercolour card and painted with AquaMarkers.This is my very first attempt.Even though I’ve bought a lot of pens recently I couldn’t resist buying these at a whopping 60% off.Think I’m gonna like my new toys!The inverted scallop border was created using the same punch used on the corners but without the guide.The bow is actually faux.After wrapping the ribbon around the brown card I bound a section with some thread then took a loop of some more and also wound some thread round the centre.I’ve topped it with a kind of flower made using the scraps where I punched the inverted corners.I folded them in half and wet glued them to a small circle of brown card,another scrap.I was then able to position them as I liked. A Chocolate Pearl  was adhered in the centre.
