Thank You

Hi  Everyone

It's April 1 and its a new month and time for another new challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ.

Below is the card that I created for the Craft-Dee BowZ inspiration and it's also on the CDB blog site as well.

If you're like me, I have rubber stamps (mounted and unmounted), clear stamps and digital images. So it seems I have a lot of images to choose from. I decided to go thru some of my digtal images and came across this one.(The flower and the butterfly are all one image) I am sorry but I do not know where this came from. I colored it with colored pencils and used Gamsol to blend the colors.

I guess I chose this image because it reminds me of spring, but spring seems to be slow in coming this year.

I used designer papers and added a punched border strip and layered the panel onto the card.

I attached my bow to the panels before layering them on the card front.

Before I forget - Craft-Dee BowZ is hosting a blog hop starting at 10:00 p.m. edt Thursday April 16. We hope you will join us and find inspiration in all of the projects that the designers will be showing off. The designers theme is Living On The Edge - Use a Border Die. Now that sounds like a great theme and lots of fun inspiration.

Stamps: Digital - Unknown 
Paper/Card Stock
: Black CS, DP
Punch Used/Dies: Sizzix Tag CDie, MS Punch around the Page - Traditional Eyelet
Accessories: Hug Snug Ribbon, Prisma Colored Pencils, Gamsol,
