Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone and welcome back
Its the first Tuesday of the month  so that means its my turn to post over at Craft-Dee BowZ

A really good friend of mine is celebrating her birthday today,
 so the card I am showing you today is the card I made for her.

Since Beccy's Place it the sponsor over at Craft-Dee BowZ for April, I decided to use one of the images I have in my treasure trove of digital images.
(It's an oldie but a goodie, not available anymore)

I decided to use a floral image since we are in spring - it is spring isn't it??
 It's still cooler here in N.KY but supposed to get warmer and wetter. Oh well its not snow. LOL

I love this floral sprig. I actually used 2 sprigs, one is flipped to give me a mirror image. 
Then I arranged these to make it look like a really full bouquet.

That sentiment is a die cut,  I cut one in that light purple and I cut another in black. 
Then I mounted the two in an off-set manner.


Here is a closer view of my bow.
 I made 2 single loop bows, one a little larger than the other and stacked them. 
I just love this look and its so easy to do.

If you are bow challenged, like I used to be,
order a Craft-Dee BowZ tool here and you will be an expert in no time.

Let me show you the inside of this card.


The flower is just a portion of the original flower sprig, I needed to make the inside look great as well.
