Sweet Baby

Hello crafty friends, how you all doing this fine Tuesday?  Today I got up and finished all the chores I wanted to do, and then decided I wanted to try a new technique of some sort, so I check out some of the things I pinned on Pinterest and saw a way to dress up your ribbon on your cards.  
The technique was to string the ribbon and pearls on a cord, and make a necklace, but since I did not have any cord, I used thread and a needle.  and instead of making a necklace, I made a strip to decorate a card. 
 You string the pearls onto the thread and then make 3 moutains and valleys and then add a pearl and 3 mountains and valleys.. and so on and so on....

After I got the string of pearls as long as I wanted, I tied it off on both ends and then made a triple bow and glued them both on to my project...

Voila!!!  A "Sweet Baby" card.
