Top O' the Morning

Hi Everyone,
It's Barbara and I am back to show you a beautiful two toned bow that I made using two different colored ribbons. I know, we are just beginning the month of February and Valentine's cards are probably still on your mind, but, I had this beautiful gold and a green sheer ribbon in my stash and I wanted to make a St. Patrick's themed card.  Sheer ribbons are my favorite type of ribbon to use with the Craft-Dee BowZ  tool.

This tool

gives you the ability
to make a 
bow like this

And here is the bow on my card.

Since I have no St. Patty's stamps, (imagine that!!) I just used green card stocks and a great little shamrock  punch. I stamped a beautiful butterfly, glittered it up and I perched it on a rosette. Scored the background paper and traced the score marks with a glue pen and covered with green glitter. 

OK,  get your valentine cards done, then it will be on to St. Patty's Day cards. Get your Craft-Dee BowZ tool out to make your spectacular bows. Don't have one!!?!! Well to order yours today, click the Buy Now button located on the side bar.

Oh I almost forgot! You will want to stop back Thursday February 7, for the first Craft-Dee BowZ Blog Hop. We will be awarding a prize of a Craft-Dee BowZ tool and a spool of gorgeous ribbon. Since the design team is made up of  4 designers, it won't take you very long to get thru the hop. Commenting will put you in the running to be a prize winner.

I hope to see you back here Thursday for the Blog Hop. Have a great day

Oh, Barbara! I just love this card and not JUST because of the bow -- it's extremely eye-catching. Goes to show one doesn't need a particular stamp image to convey the meaning intended. But your bow IS BEAUTIFUL!
