A Little Vintage St. Patrick's Day

I wanted to share a card with you using a vintage image. I also just used some left over scrap papers and cardstock that were green. I used the pretty gold and green sheer ribbon. The green has a little sparkle to it too!

Here you can see some of the detail where I cut a pattern strip and added cream pearls to the centers.

Here you see my bow, using the two ribbons and a double loop, of course using the Craft-Dee Bowz tool! I added some little blooms to the center!

Here is another closeup of the bow and the detail!

I used a scallop punch and put a green border around the entire thing and also added more cream pearls. It's a pretty elegant look without much time! The Craft-Dee Bowz tool makes bows so easy, and you can just use your imagination and go wild!

I hope you like the card, and don't forget to come back to see what we have in store for you next!!!!

Oh Patti! Whoa! LOVE LOVE LOVE this card - the bow is gorgeous with the ribbon selections and flowers - very in keeping with the vintage feel. But I especial like the tiny die cuts used to create the dimensional border - that is GORGEOUS! Your colors and lass are sweet as can be.
