Birthday Blessings to You

Hi Everyone!!!
It's Barbara and I am back with my regular monthly post. Did you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend??? I sure did. Now it's time to get back in the swing of things, back to work, back to the normal routine.

Today I have a card for you that contains a  bit of orange in it.Normally I am not a big fan of orange, but my tastes must be changing 'cause it seems like I've used I used orange a lot lately. And here I go again today with more orange. LOL  That's OK, I guess I am in ushering the fall season, with my choice of orange colors on these cards lately.

I had some Tri Shutter cards cut out and ready to finish and I decided to use one of those for my card today.

I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool to make the bow for this card. And you know, I always say this, that tool is easy to use and it lets me make fabulous bows every time. I opted for a double loop bow for this card. I really didn't want the bow to over power the side of the card. Did you notice that I layered the green ribbon down the center of that wide yellow ribbon. What a great effect.

I used one of my blank tri shutter cards as the card base.I added stamped images and gorgeous designer paper to really make that card come to life.
This first pic shows the card closed.

These tri-shutter cards are so fun to decorate, because there are so many areas to work with.
I love the fact that they will stand up on their own and show themselves off. LOL

The pic below is a view from the right looking to the left
The sentiment is positioned in the center.

I added 3 flowers to the right side of the card.

That butterfly is the perfect addition to the front area. 

Craft-Dee BowZ has their monthly challenge going on right now. Hope you enter, you could be the next winner of the bow maker. Click here or go to the Monthly Challenge tab at the top of the page to check out the challenge blog and all the details. 

Well that is it for now, have a great week.
Stop in next Tuesday for another post from one of the designers.
See ya soon.

Hi Barbara. Every month I look forward to seeing what you come up with, and you never disappoint! This was gorgeous. I think you should continue to give orange some prime time, 'cause you rocked that card! Thanks for the inspiration.

This is a great card Barbara. I have to go and try one of these cards now, I have never made one before... Just wanted to say I love my Craft-Dee Bowz tool. Will need to start watching a few tutorials so that I can make different types of bows.
