Craft-Dee BowZ Back to School Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!!!!
If you arrived here from Vicki's blog then you are in the right spot. If not, then you may want to start at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog to get all the details.

This month's theme is Back To School. What a great theme!!! Perfect for this time of year!! I decided to add a slight twist to this theme for my post. Remember back to your high school school days. Buses, lockers, books, football, homecoming!!  I remember the fun homecoming game and the dance and the king and queen being crowned.All these things remind me of Back to School. So I decided to focus on "homecoming" as my back to school theme.

The colors I used are the actual colors of my high school. Red and gray. Go Colonels!!! 
What a great card to send to the the Homecoming Queen. 


Here is a close up of my bow.
I didn't want to overpower the bottom of the card with a really frilly bow, so I used a double loop bow..
