Ribbons and Bows at the House of Gilli

Today is my turn to show you my Gilli creation for the House of Gilli challenge.

005 copy (Small)

For my image I chose Cowgirl Gilli. She is so versatile, she can be used in many areas. For this card I have her being an officer of the law!

I pulled out my Cricut and dusted it off for these stars. These are from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and are very fitting with the patterned paper. I colored Gilli with Copics and my sentiment uses the SSD Anglaise Circle Spellbinders compatible Dies. For my bow I used Tim Holtz Crushed Olive Distress Pads and inked it up. I also inked all the edges of my papers. I added three colors of ribbon in my bow and tied it all with my bow easy.

For the inside of the card I used the same stars and added a couple of pistol charms along with my sentiment.

Thanks for visiting and hope you will come join us at the House of Gilli. Remember, a Gilli stamp isn’t required but you have more to win if you use one!

I’m entering this in the following challenges:
