Craft-Dee BowZ - Just For You

Hello and welcome to February,

I have 2 posts for you today, please scroll down for the Crafty Creations Challenge post.

Since it's the beginning of February, Craft-Dee BowZ has a new monthly challenge that has started,

Let me share my card with you.

This cute little rabbit is from A Day For Daisies,
the sponsor for the CDB challenge this month

When I was looking at the image for this card I went over to A Day For Daisies, looking at more of their images and I found flowers that looked like the flowers that this cute bunny is holding. Since they were a match (in my eyes) I went ahead and purchased that image. What a perfect match.

I added three of those flowers as a border and  it really added to the card design.

The bow is a two layered single loop bow. I love the look of that bow style. It takes up less space than a pouffy bow and it is the perfect bow style for this card.

The Craft-Dee BowZ tool is the perfect bow maker.

Order yours here.

Stamps: Digital - A Day For Daisies- Flowers For Mrs, Fairy Stems Rubber Stamp - Hero Arts (old)
Paper/Card Stock
: DP, White CS, Purple CS
Ink: Memento - Grape Jelly
Dies Used: Spellbinders Classic Diamonds
Ribbon, Craft-Dee BowZ  tool, dimensional foam, Spectrum Noir - Various colors, Martha Stewart Scallop 3 Dot punch.

I am submitting this card in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I will be back soon.
