Sweet Stampin - Ribbons and BOWS

This week at Sweet Stampin we are sponsored by our monthly sponsor, Joanna Sheen and the fabulous Crafty Ribbons
Let me just explain to you all, how my thought process works. 
1. Yay ribbon!
2. I really want to show them off
3. Clean and Simple card
4. Same colour tonings
5. Different designs, textures and widths
6. A bit 'blokey' this time

So I set to work and make my card. I load it onto the Sweet Stampin site and then ..... I read the instructions. 
The challenge is 'Ribbons and BOWS'. 
Yes, you must have ribbons and BOWS. 
Not just ribbons but ribbons and BOWS. 

So I am thinking that I have done you all a favour by showing you what NOT to do. 
Really, really nice of me huh! 
There is no need to thank me, just head on over to Sweet Stampin with your ribbons and BOWS and show us what you have got. In the meantime, I will be sitting here in my naughty chair reading the instructions to the washing machine, the dvd player, the can opener, the alarm clock and the printer.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Clear it Out Anything Goes/Use more than one ribbon from your stash (I read the conditions and there is no mention of bows at all - safe!)
Crafting for all Seasons #29 For Men (I read the conditions and there is no mention of a bow of any type - safe again!)
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #22 Clean and Simple (I read the conditions and there is no 'bow' requirement - phew safe!)  TOP 3

  2. I love, love, love this card! Who cares about the bow - it wouldn't go with the design anyway! Hugs, Tracey xx

  3. What a lovely card.
    greatings, Anja

  4. Hee, hee! I love this card and I don't care that there isn't a bow on there! Wedgie xxx

  5. I think this card is FAB, even without a bow! It doesn't need it in my eyes. Mwah. xx

  6. Fabulous card with or without bows. Who needs bows anyway?

  7. Hi Jenny, what a fab card! Love the clean lines and the way you've used the different ribbons. I'm sure the boss ladies over at Sweet Stampin won't mind you missed the bows (tho I'd watch that Abi if I were you - I hear she's really, really strict!!!).

    So sorry I've not been by for so long, am well behind with blogworld, something to do with being busy in real life!


  8. Oh.My.Gosh...seriously laughing out loud to myself like a lunatic as I read your post! Mostly because I do stuff like that all the time, lol! Well, bow or no bow I love your card :) Good luck at wading through all the now mandatory reading- I've heard those instruction manuals can be a bit dry! Many hugs, Katie

  12. You are too funny and eerily like me! I love your card and think it is fantastic for a guy card, bow or not!

  13. I love this Jenny! And I didn't read instructions on a DT card recently either. Raining cats and dogs - stupidly never thought that what was actually needed was a cat or a dog. I concentrated on the rain.... rescued it at the last minute though...

    I'm laughing because the same happensed to me recently. For a challenge with certain requirements, I finished a layout was quite please with it went to post it and then realized that the challenge was for a card. As I had it half posted I had to back out and explain my mistake for all to read...and ran...ran to nearest exit.
