What an awesome Blog Hop theme, Pretty in Pink (October is Breast Cancer Awareness month). I am the last of the designers in the hop. I am sure you have seen some wonderful designs graced with beautiful bows, all made using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  Let me share my project,which is a card,

I made a layered bow using two different ribbons. The bottom bow is a sheer glittered ribbon and I made a triple loop bow.Next I made a smaller, single loop bow and stacked the smaller bow on top of the larger bow. 

Here is a closer view of the bow

You know the Craft-Dee BowZ has the best bow making tool out none.

I am the last designer in the blog hop. We at Craft-Dee BowZ hope you had a great time and that our projects gave you some inspiration for projects of your own..

To be eligible for the prize, leave a comment on all the designers blogs and hop back to the Craft-Dee BowZ and leave one last comment there as well.
