Guest Designer for Craft-Dee BowZ - Easter Blessings Card

Hello everyone!  I am so excited and honored to be the Guest Designer for Craft-Dee BowZ for the month of March!  I was thrilled when I received the email from Donna!  I am having a lot of fun creating beautiful bows with the Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  I love that the dowels are metal and everything is self-contained.  I also love being able to create a wonderful variety of different size bows.  

Here is a look at the card I designed.  I stamped the image fromCR-03660 Easter Blessings clear stamp set from  JustRite Papercraft on to simply smooth white cardstock using Rich Cocoa ink and then I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers.  To create the die cuts I used S4-425 Elegant Ovals from Spellbinder Paper Arts®.  The metallic background was embossed using E3D-015 Tiger Lilies M-Bossabilities Folder from Spellbinder Paper Arts .  The base of the card is a light yellow layered with a celery green mat.  I adhered the two top layers together and then I added some Celery 1.25'' Silk and Ivory 1/4'' Silk ribbons from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  Next I layered the die cuts using 3D Foam Squares and applied them to the card.  I used the Craft-Dee BowZ tool to create the beautiful little bow.  I love bows with lots of loops so I followed the Multiple Loops-Figure Eight Method for creating the bow.  

Here is a close up of the bow.  The Craft-Dee BowZ tool is so easy to use and I love using it with silk ribbon.  Sometimes when I am trying to make a bow with just my hands the silk ribbon is so silky smooth and it slips right through my fingers but when I'm using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool I don't have to worry about that at all!  Love it!

These are the colors of the  Spectrum Noir™ markers I used to color the image.

To finish off the card I added a little sparkle using the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and a few pearls.  

Thank you so much for joining me today! Also a Huge Thank You to Donna and Barbara for asking me to be a Guest Designer!!  Please be sure to hop on over to the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog and check it out.  They have a wonderful Design Team with lot of inspiration and they also do a monthly challenge.

    what a beautifully appropriate card for this season coming up on us. The lilies embossing folder looks so lovely with you stamped focal point in front of it. I think it is right somehow for the Easter cross,
