Hi all
It is time for another challenge at   Craft-Deebowz.. The theme as always is "ANYTHING  GOES WITH A HANDMADE BOW". This month our fab sponsor is Beccy's Place.
 
The lucky winner will receive one set of digital images as their prize.For my DT project I made the card above using Beccy's "Thinking of you set " you can find it HERE. I coloured the image with spectrum noir illustrator pens. I used digital papers from Bearly Mine. The corners were created using a spellbinder corner die . The beautiful flowers were handmade using the sunflower  stamp and die set from hweartfelt creations which I coloured using Tim Holtz distress inks .The centres are dazzlers from creative expressions which I coloured using my illustrator pens to match the flowers.
The  gorgeous full double looped bow was made using my ribbon from the MPPpack I received from Donna and of course my trusty Craft-Dee Bowz bow maker which you can find HERE . It creates stunning single and multi looped bows every time so easily ... check it out !
