Craft-Dee BowZ April Blog Hop!

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

We are celebrating April with a "Living on the Edge"  theme.  Hopefully, on the edge of much warmer weather now that it's finally spring here in the Northeast.  The CDBZ Design Team will be sharing their borders and fancy edges with you along the way.

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. 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 will see wonderful inspiration along the way!

So, let's get started...

Craft-Dee BowZ  
(Begin Here) 

You can also play along with the Craft-Dee BowZ monthly challenge for April, "Anything goes and include a handmade bow".  Details in the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog!

Here's my inspiration using Sue Wilson's Greek Island Collection...Ivy Border, Corner and Tag Dies.

"Thinking of You"

This card has to be one of the most favorite of my creations.  I love everything about it...the entire design, colors, papers and all of the details.  To add a little more detail to the background, I used a stencil and distress inks to highlight the ombre colors in the ribbon along with a mix of flowers.

This tag die-cut from the set was the perfect size for the sentiment I wanted to use.

And the bow?  This magnificent bow was created using my ever present Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.  It helps make my bow making task so easy peasy!

Lilacs are my favorite flower. Growing up on the north east coast of the USA meant we had them growing wild. We'd pick them every spring and the whole house smelled beautiful. This card has my favorite elements. The flower, the color purple and beautiful ribbon. It's a gorgeous card and I'm not surprised that it's one of your favorites..it's one of mine, too! Beautiful card, Vicki! Hugs, Gail
