Happy Birthday

Hello Everyone

Thanks for stopping in today.The Craft-Dee BowZ Design Team members have a theme for June - Shabby Chic. (Please remember, the challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ for anyone that submits a project to the challenge is always ANYTHING GOES.)

Since the DT theme is shabby chic, I thought I'd use some corner die cuts and some shabby looking flowers that were in my stash.This month the designers received peach colored satin ribbon, sheer lace and sheer ribbon.The peach satin ribbon - I pleated this myself. It is really easy and it adds a very pretty look.I attached it over the top edge of the sheer lace.

For my bow - I made a triple loop stacked bow. And I added a pearl stick pin to the knot. The Craft-Dee BowZ tool is the perfect tool to make any type of bow, and it's super easy to make this bow using the tool.

The flowers - the two larger flowers are store bought - the two smaller flowers, I made myself. I added some green ferns for additional floral interest.

Ink: None
Dies Used: Sizzix -Tim Holtz Tattered Florals (2 smaller flowers), Handwritten Celebrate (Thinlits), Spellbinders Becca Feekin Dies (Corner dies and label shape - old), Spellbinders - Ferns
