I love cupcakes!

Here we are, a new challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ so you know it's the first of the month! And, as usual, our challenge is monthly and the topic is ANYTHING GOES WITH A HANDMADE BOW.  I used this adorable image from Lili of the Valley for my card.


The card shape is by a die by Go Kreate, the diecut around my image is by Spellbinders, the cupcake die is by Marianne Design and the balloon die is by QuicKutz. I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool to make my pink double looped bow and I had this awesome cupcake button from Dress It Up that I cut off the back and glued it in the middle of the bow. My flowers are from I Am Roses and byThita. The tag sentiments are by Lili of the Valley. The little metal flower charm hanging from the little white bow was on a charm bracelet that my daughter didn't want anymore. My tip is this: take a look at old jewelry and you'll be amazed at what you can re-use and recycle...charm bracelets, old broaches, old earrings...I've used so many odds and ends like that as an embellishment or to put in the middle of a pretty bow!

Here's the image close-up and she's colored with Copics.


I made chocolate cupcakes with vanilla cream frosting. I wasn't kidding when I posted this and named the post "I love cupcakes!".  I used my Sakura glue pen and applied Warm Glitter Ritz to the petticoat of my image. I also added spots of glitter on my polka dot papers and around my balloon edges, too.

Please take a look at the projects the Team of Craft-Dee BowZ have made to inspire you this month and don't forget that each Tuesday one of us has a project to show you!  Hope you'll join us for our August ANYTHING GOES WITH A HANDMADE BOW.

                                                                                           Hugs,
                                                                                           Gail

  25. Such a cute image that you colored wonderfully. Love the many embellishments layered here. So glad you joined us at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with an awesome inspiration from the Scripture in Hebrews 3:6 and it says, "But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast." Have an awesome week.
