Hello everyone and welcome to September

I thought I'd stop in and get the month started with my card 
for the Craft-Dee BowZ September challenge. 
September  means it's getting really, really close to the official start of fall 
and it also means it's time to start another monthly challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ. 

This month's sponsor is Fred She Said

The prize offered by Fred She Said is
$10.00 gift certificate
Hope you can come and play - and you might be a winner.

I love butterflies (and who doesn't) and since we are wrapping up summer, I decided to use a swallowtail butterfly image on my card. To me, they are the last vestiges of summer.

Fred She Said has the prettiest butterfly image. So here is the card I came up with

This card was so fun to put together. Love the colors that I used on that butterfly. 

My Bow was so easy to make since I used the Craft-Dee BowZ tool.
I just used some yellow satin ribbon and made a triple loop bow.
Easy peasy

If you are bow challenged and need an easy to use tool,
 the Craft-Dee BowZ tool fits the bill, so
