Hi Everyone,

WOW, four months down. April has flown by and now we are into May. It's the first Tuesday of the month and that means its my turn to post for Craft-Dee BowZ. The designers were given a theme this month -  Spots and Dots. I made a collage image a while back and it was just waiting to be used. I decided to use a purple ribbon then I picked up a polka dot paper pad while I was in Tennessee giving me this beautiful purple polka dot paper. And this collage fit the bill and the card just came together. 

Here is a closer view of my bow.

Stamps: Tim Holtz Stamper Anonymous - Seamless Experience
Paper/Card Stock

Accessories: Dots stencil, Ribbon, Craft-Dee BowZ  tool, Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst - Open Arms Amethyst
