Merry Christmas - Late

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

The new year, 2018,  has begun. WOW!! 
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or whatever holiday you celebrate.

Since it is the beginning of a new year, it's time to get back into the crafting groove 
and what better way to start it off, than with the Craft-Dee BowZ monthly challenge.

The sponsor this month is Beccy's Place.

Beccy's Place digi's are sold in sets and she has a great selection to choose from.

The digi I am using is called the Christmas Lantern.
I have had this digi for a while and I just love it. The flowers and the holly really accent this image.
I embossed the background and lightly rubbed a little gray ink to just highlight that embossed area. 
I used the Merry Christmas sentiment, but Happy New Year would be appropriate as well.

I colored the lantern and flowers and then I printed another image and cut another holly section to use over the flower section.  I offset the flowers at the bottom of the lantern for added dimension. Next, I added flowers and more holly leaves to the top right to balance out the card.

The handmade bow is made using sheer ribbon. 
Using my personal favorite ribbon to make the bow with.
I made a double loop bow.

And I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool, to make my bow.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project. 
Hope you will link a project in the Craft-Dee BowZ monthly challenge. 
Don’t forget the theme every month is always Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow.
