Snowflakes, snowflakes and more snowflakes

Well, here we are heading towards the end of February already. Today is the fourth Tuesday of the month and it's my turn to post a card for Craft-Dee BowZ using this beautiful image by Francesca of Cute As A Button. The image I chose today is named Winter Flurries.

The snowflake border is a die by Whimsy and I added clear Skiddles to the middle of each snowflake. My sentiment is by Whimsy, too. The snowflakes in the top right corner are a die by La-La Land. I coated the snowflakes in the corner with my Sakura Glue Pen and then coated them with Cool Glitter Ritz. You can see the Cool Glitter Ritz below on the snowflakes, her hat, cuffs, collar and boots, too. For the snowman I used Stampendous Snow Glitter. I added the little purple pearls as an accent on the top string of each snowflake.

And the best part is the bow! This is a double loop bow made on my Craft-Dee BowZ tool. My bow tool has so many assorted sizes to fit every project I'm working on. I love my little bow tool and it hangs by it's pretty ribbon right next to my work table. It's the one tool I use on almost every card! I added this little blue snowflake in the middle with a bit of glue.

Our sponsor is Cute As A Button.  Francesca at Cute As A Button is a wonderful artist and I know you'll love her artwork. She's donating two digital images of the winner's choice! Why not stop by her store and take a look at her fabulous images!
Thanks for coming over and looking at my card and reading the details of it. I hope you've seen Barb's, Vicki's and Tracey's cards this month...and if you haven't, please stop by the Craft-Dee BowZ blog and take a peek at their posts. I know you won't regret the few moments it takes to see their projects.
It's almost the end of the month which means you need to get your cards posted on the Craft-Dee BowZ blog within the next few days. Remember that the challenge is ANYTHING GOES WITH A HANDMADE BOW

  2. Beautiful card, Gail! Your bow is gorgeous and I love all the details! Winter cards are my favourite!

  3. What a cute image, Gail -- and the cool blue and lavender you used really enhance each other. I know you're in Arizona, so can't figure out how you've kept this snowman intact, rather than melting into a puddle - hahaha!! Your snowflakes are lovely - both the border and the banner, and the added glitz is just perfect, along with the pretty bow and sentiment. Too bad you're not in Michigan right now, as that white stuff is coming down and I think it forgot the "off" button - yikes! Schools are even closed today due to the storm warnings and my guess is they'll be off again tomorrow at least. The joys of winter . . .

  4. Wonderful love the fabulous stamp and great colours The snowflakes are stunning I love that La la Land die perfect. Might have to add that to the wish list!! Hope you are OK enjoy your week Love and hugs Carole x

  5. You make such beautiful bows,love the image and snowflakes
