Does my bow look big on this?

Honest answers please lol!
I've had this bow just sat in a drawer for ages as I thought it was maybe a bit too big to use on a card then when I was putting this card together I just thought what the heck....and I love it! It's a "just because I wanted to make it" card, that's why there's no sentiment yet, figured I could pop a little tag on when I know where it's going! I've used the sweetest little image from LOTV, coloured with promarkers & flexmarkers, paper from the Boofle range, paper roses, punched flowers & butterflies, my Marianne Creatables tree die and lashings of stickles! Now I just need to make a box deep enough to fit that bow! 
So, my friends, what are your plans for today? Well it's raining here so I think the boys will probably be on xbox so that means me and Miss Rebecca can play in the craft room! 
Thanks for calling today, hope your days' a good one!
Big hugs Jo x

    We are still up at the lake...will return home on Sunday and I will go to the dollar store on Tuesday (when I babysit the grandkids) to pick up the pearl swirls for you. I have a black and grey set I can give you if the white are sold out...but I want to go buy yours and some more for my stash...the grandkids love dollarama as they can spend their allowance on something there!
    It will be a fun outing as they never get to go on the bus with their Mummu or Daddy...Grandma is so much fun as I don 't drive and so they get to ring the bell on the bus...teeheehee
