Craft-Dee BowZ July Challenge Inspiration!

It's July and the Craft-Dee BowZ Design Team is creating with their Craft-Dee BowZ tools and some yummy ribbon to inspire you! Plaids and pastels will be in abundance all month long on the blog.
I found the perfect, pastel, plaid patterned paper for my card inspiration.  Wow, try repeating that sentence while eating a cracker!  Anyway, here is my plaid and pastel creation...

"Wishing You"

This 6x6 card has lots of layers.  I used the craft, pink, and turquoise colors in the patterned paper for the matting and saved the green for the foliage.  The flowers and fern are covered with distress glitter for sparkle!  I added micro beads to a butterfly for some texture along with a doily as the bouquet background.   The yummy multi loop, two-toned bow was created using my awesome Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.

Dies R Us "Stars and Stripes" Challenge!

July is here and that means our country's birthday is just around the corner! At the Dies R Us Challenge Blog, we are celebrating with "Stars and Stripes" for the first two weeks of July.

We want you to use your die-cuts and play along with us.

I'm a Yankee Doodle girl for sure, and created my inspiration using red, white and blue.

"Land of the free..."
This card was inspired by our national anthem and the many brave men and women that have fought for and continue to fight for our freedom.  The flag background paper was an obvious choice for the card base.  I used the music notes to represent the song itself and the skyline of trees and house for the "land of the free".  It wouldn't be complete without fireworks and stars.

CDBZ June "Wedding" Blog Hop!

It's time again for another fun blog hop at Craft-Dee BowZ!

We are celebrating June with a "wedding" theme!
 The CDBZ Design Team will be sharing their wedding themed inspiration as you travel from blog to blog.

Begin at the Craft-Dee BowZ  Blog for quidelines and prize information.   From there you will visit each of the design team member blogs.  If you get lost along the way just refer back to the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog.  You can play along from June 11th through the 14th.  The winner will be announced on June 15th!

To be eligible for the Craft-Dee BowZ  Blog Hop prize, a 25 yard spool of ribbon, you must leave a comment on each of the blogs listed below. But our team is small, so it won't take long and you'll love the inspiration they share with you along the way!

So, let's get started...

Craft-Dee BowZ  (Begin here for guidelines) 

Here's my wedding themed inspiration!

"a beautiful forever"

I love how this non-traditional looking wedding card turned out! 
The newspaper print patterned paper is from an old collection in my stash.  Not much left of it and I wish I had more.  It was perfect for the background mat on this wedding card.

When I think of love, the color red always comes to mind.  Maybe it's because hearts are red?  Not sure why, but I decided to use it as my accent color along with ivory, black and a touch of silver.  I used lots of elegant die-cuts to embellish my card.  The sentiment stamp is from a new collection that I recently purchased from Verve Stamps.

The lovely silver shimmer bow was so easy to make using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  I keep it nearby at all time when crafting.  You can own one too.  Visit the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog and buy one now.  It will make you a happy bow-making crafter!

 I hope my card has inspired you.
Thanks for stopping by to share my blog hop inspiration.
