Fairies and Butterflies

Hi Everyone,
Barbara here with my post for this month.

The colors for the Craft-Dee BowZ projects this month are to include shades of aqua, so you will see that color all month long in the Craft-Dee BowZ projects presented by the designers.

On my card, I used a designer paper and cut a panel and added a wide gathered lace piece to the mid section of the panel. I added a thin light turquoise ribbon to the edge of that lace. Over that I used 2 overlapped embossed ovals and I added ribbon to the center of those ovals and attached those to the card. Next I attached another oval in turquoise centering over the other ovals.  I then attached my fairy to the center oval. Next, I made a single loop bow using white organza ribbon. On top of that I added a double loop satin bow.

Here is a closer shot of that bow.

I had the prettiest aqua flowers ready to be used so I decided to add them to the bow, ringing the center area. I added a few sprigs and a few butterflies in the upper left corner of the card, and the card is done.

Please stop back tomorrow evening. The June blog hop gets started at 10:00 p.m. edt on June 4.  The Paper Nest Dolls will be sponsoring this blog hop. The prize to be awarded will be a $25.00 gift certificate to be used in their store on either rubber stamps or digital images.

Oooh, Barb, I love what you did with that bow -- the aqua flowers with that little zing of hot pepper or pottery. Great card!
