Turn Over a New Leaf

Hello everyone,

Not sure if you know this but over at Craft-Dee BowZ, all the designers take a turn posting on a Tuesday.  I am scheduled for the 1st Tuesday of each month and that's today.

I don't know about you but I keep seeing cards made with Patchwork dies over on Pinterest and I love this look. I did some digging and the company that offers these dies is in the Netherlands and out of 8 different die sets they have offered in the past, they only have 3 styles left to buy. Since they are on sale I have to assume once they are gone - they are gone for good. (Bummer) So with that in mind, I ordered the 3 styles that are left to get.

So while I wait for these dies to arrive (from the Netherlands so that will take a little while) I just used some circle dies and kind of made my own design

Here is what I came up with.

I added a flower and a butterfly die cut as accents and that is how this card came together.
I just love this patchwork look.

As an accent, I made a smaller triple loop bow using a dotted swiss ribbon.

The Craft-Dee BowZ tool makes it so easy to make your bows the size you need for your cards.

BTW please don't forget that the CDB June Challenge is under way. 
The sponsor this month is Cute As A Button 
and the winner will receive a prize of 3 single digi images of the winners choice

Hi Barb!
I recently bought some beautiful patchwork dies at a stamping convention. The company is called Purple Daisy Designs and they are from Pennsylvania.
I'm looking forward to seeing your dies.
