Love is in the air!

Well, it's the last Tuesday in January so that means it's my turn to post on Craft-Dee BowZ.  This month our sponsor is Cute as a Button. Francesca at Cute as a Button is a talented artist and I know you'll love her images, so please go and visit her store!

I used this adorable digital image named Share the Love from Cute as a Button for my project this month.
 I colored my image with Copics and chalked the outside of the oval for a bit of color.  The heart lace around the image is from JoAnn's and was on a spool. The pretty silver heart clip with 'love' written in it is from Live & Love Crafts.  This fabulous shaped card was made with dies from Go Kreate.

Below is my flower arrangement. I used flowers from I Am Roses and Wild Orchid Crafts. The sparkly heart is my own creation. I die cut a heart onto double stick tape stuck on heavy white cardstock and sprinkled Crystal Stars Glitter - Rose on it. Then I covered it all with Glossy Accents and while it was wet I added another sprinkle of Crystal Stars Glitter. When that dried, I added one more layer of Glossy Accents. It's very 3-D, but smooth and you can see depth due to the Glossy Accents.

And my bow was made on my Craft-Dee BowZ tool which is why it looks so nice. This little tool is outstanding, inexpensive, handy to hang by the ribbon and easy to use! This double looped, double ribboned, bow came out so pretty and I hope the photo captures it well for you to see. The red jewel in the center has crinkled foil on the back, making it look sparkly.

The winner of the January Craft-Dee BowZ challenge of ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HAND MADE BOW will be 2 images of their choice from Cute as a Button. Along with that you'll get our badge to put on your blog. I hope you'll join us this month and your time is running out so get your card posted to the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge blog soon!
