Hello Everyone, 
Today is December's first Tuesday 
and time for my Craft-Dee BowZ inspiration post 

I received a Christmas gift Saturday and
wanted to make a card to express my gratitude
to my friend.

I decided that I wanted the card
to have an underlying theme
 of the Christmas season.

When I was coloring the blooms on this image I was not happy with one bloom.
So I decided to color another image but just the blooms.
After  coloring the blooms (again) I fussy cut the 2nd  bloom area
and popped it up over the original

Next, I looked at the vase and it reminded me of an old coffee pot.
So I thought I'd use some silver leaf to give it an old look

I added some satin ribbon along the right side of the card,
 made my bow using my CDB bow maker,
and attached it to the satin ribbon. 
Sometimes it makes for a interesting look 
to mix 2 different types of ribbon.
Here is a closer view of my fluffy bow. 
It's a triple loop made using very sheer ribbon (my fav)

The great thing about the Craft-Dee BowZ tool is,  
it's easy to use, it's small and portable and easy to store. 
Makes great bows, whether they are little or larger, say for a gift.
