The Craft-Dee BowZ June Blog Hop

Hi There

Welcome to the June Craft-Dee BowZ blog hop. If you  arrived here here from Gails blog, then you are in the right spot. If not, you may want to click here to start at the beginning.
The theme is Wedding and I know from time to time we all are invited to a wedding. So I hope you have seen some great designs for that wedding card you may need to make sometime in the future.

I am the last stop in our blog hop but for the guidelines and prize info please begin over at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog. Make sure to visit all of the designers blogs and leave comments to be eligible for a prize of a 25 yard spool of yummy ribbon,(Winner to be announced on Monday). Since our team is small it won't take too long to visit and comment on all the blogs. 

In case you got lost along the way here are the team members

Craft-Dee BowZ  (start here)
Barbara Bruder (You are here)

The theme for this blog hop is Wedding but I decided to venture away from the traditional white card. I designed my card to be elegant yet I used the colors of the bridal party.

The lace that I used is hand crocheted and I have had it for 20+ years. 
The blue piece that is threaded thru the lace, it's a strip of shimmer card stock 

The flowers are all my handmade creations  from my stash. I use the Tim Holtz Die to cut out the shapes using pages from an old dictionary. I love print on flowers and got a steal on the dictionary at a resale shop.I create them ahead of time then they just wait to be used on a project. 
 The leaves....I used a Martha Stewart hand punch.

Here is a close up of the bow.
I used a cream satin ribbon and just tied a single loop bow. I added a flower over the knot.

 Well I hope you saw something that inspired you for a card you might need to make in the future.
We loved having you drop by today.

Don't forget to comment on the individual designers blogs to be in the running for the giveaway
