Happy Birthday

Hi there! How's your week going so far? 
                 Well the months are going by fast, aren't they??? 

Did you know, not only does Craft-Dee BowZ host a challenge, but they also post weekly inspiration projects each Tuesday?
Hope you will stop over at Craft-Dee BowZ and check out their inspiration posts. 



Since it's the 1st Tuesday of the month, it's my turn to share an inspiration project. 
The Craft-Dee BowZ challenge has already started and will be running until September 30

. I've been working on Christmas cards for a while., (I am preparing for a show in Cincinnati in November.) so I decided to take a break from Christmas and work on a birthday card. 

Let me share my inspiration piece 

and I hope it gives you some ideas to design a card or two.

This is my version of a clean and simple card.
And this is about as CAS as I can get.



On a white panel, I stamped the image in the center and without reinking,
 I huffed onto the stamp and stamped the image again to the left of the original image. 
Next, I huffed one more time and stamped again to the right of the original image. 

I used a stamp with dots on it to add some additional interest.

I mounted the stamped panel on a raspberry panel. 

I made my bow and attached it to the corner of this panel. 

Next, I cut a larger panel and used an embossing folder to add texture and attached the stamped panel on top. 

Finally, I attached all these panels to the front of the card.

Here is a closer view of my bow.

I used a 1/2" sheer ribbon. 

I actually made a single loop bow and then stacked a smaller single loop bow 
on top of the first bow
I then attached the stacked single loop bows onto the corner of the stamped panel. 

The sponsor for the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge this month is Beccy's Place

The prize will be  1 digital set

Don't forget,
 the challenge theme is always 
Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow
