Everything is Better

Happy August!!
WOW August is here.....  school starts in some areas, summer is on the wane, Stampaway Convention is taking place in a few days in Cincinnati, ah yes, I can continue but you are here to see a card not to hear a list of what August brings. LOL

The 1st of the month brings a new challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ. The challenge theme is always Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow.You have the whole month to get your project completed and uploaded on the monthly challenge page over at Craft-Dee BowZ. We'd all love to see your submission and you could be our next winner.

For a little inspiration, I've made a masculine card and decided to use a single loop bow. I felt that a single loop bow is a better type bow for a man card.

Let me share my card with you.


That bow is made using a sheer ribbon. One of the best ribbons to use to make a bow IMHO.

Craft-Dee BowZ has the best bow making tool. It assists you in making single and multi-loop ribbon bows. It can also assist you in making a Washi Tape bow, tassels, wire flowers. WOW what a great list of different options. Check out the various Craft-Dee BowZ videos
