April Blog Hop At CraftDeeBowz.

Hi all
welcome to the  CraftDee Bowz  blog hop .you have arrived from  the first stop which was  Gail's  blog . The theme for this months hop is   "Living on the edge" -use your border dies.
The prize for the lucky winner of the blog hop is a fab reel of ribbon

For my DT card  I have made this cute card using a fab stamp from Sarah Kay called a picnic of daisies...She is one of my favourite stamps .I coloured her with promarkers . I used papers from Trimcraft Rose garden pad. The flowers are handmade using centura pearl cream card from crafters companion . The lge flowe was made using a sue Wilson classic rose die and the smaller flowers are made using Memory box rolled flower dies.The large oval ornate frame around the image is a die from sweet Dixie. The butterfly border die is from Joy crafts.The fuschia card is from co-ordinations.The sentiment stamp is from pink gem.The stunning  double loopbow was made using my  Craft-Dee Bowz bow making tool pictured above. It is such an essential piece of kit and it is So easy to use .I added a gem centre from wild orchid for an added bit of bling.
