November Challenge for Craft-Dee BowZ

Hi Everyone,
I'm so glad you stopped by today.
If you are looking for the Sparkle n Sprinkle November Reveal post, please click here.

WOW do you believe it's November 1 already. Halloween is over and it was a rainy one in our area and now we will all be preparing for Thanksgiving and then Christmas. The end of the year and the start of a new year will soon be here also.Where does the time go??

During the holidays, birthdays still occur, and you probably know someone whose birthday occurs during the holiday season or falls directly on the holiday. Sometimes those birthdays are not given the attention that birthdays at other times in the year are given.So I decided to made a birthday card with a fall theme and it could be a great card for a guy, too, even with the bow and the added bling.(OK you can leave some of the bling off it the card is going to a guy!! LOL)

I made a multi-loop bow for this card and decided to add a little handmade hatpin, just to add a little more pizzazz to the card. I also seem to have become a convert to the color orange. LOL  Seems like I have used that color a lot lately and I have grown fond of this warm fall color. I used some orange glitter, some rhinestones and pearls for additional eye candy.

I love this image and even though it's no longer available, it's a perfect image for the fall season. I stamped those pumpkins on orange CS and cut them out and used a paper shaper to give them a more definitive shape and I used pop dots to make them stand out. Adding some orange glitter really finished these pumpkins off. (See, I really am getting into this orange color!!) 

Don't forget to stop over at Craft-Dee BowZ to check out the October challenge winners and we'd love it if you'd submit a project and enter the November challenge. You could be the next winner of the ever so easy to use, Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool. It's really a winner and it's easy to use no hassles, no wrenches needed to tighten anything. YouTube  videos available to walk you thru using the tool if you get stuck, which I am sure you won't. There are other YouTube videos for other other types of bows and creative ideas.

Have a great weekend, I will be back Tuesday with my regularly scheduled Craft-Dee BowZ post. Hope to see you then

Hi, Barbara! You always find the most interesting ways of "weaving" on your cards - whether it is with ribbons, papers or fabric, you create the look of weaving. This border looks amazing, and your now-retired pumpkin image is beautiful. Love those baubles in the top right corner and the pretty bling added here and there. It's a gorgeous card! hugs, de
