A card for a friend ...

 Tracey here with my mid challenge inspiration post ..I love making cards for my friends ... for no other reason but that I value them and hey its nice to get a card letting you know something thinks you are  a great friend ...
I  have made this cute "Bow fronted  card" ... I have seen this shape around on social media and craft blogs  and thought I would  like to have a go for myself . I enjoyed making this card and used a tonic die to get the shape on parts that bow out .The cute image is a digi from tiddly inks .called wryn grow some love and I coloured her with spectrum illustrator pens.
.The pretty papers are from Anna mare designs .
The flowers are pre made from wild orchid. and the stamped sentiment is from woodware.
The beautiful bow was created using my Craft-Deebowz.. bow maker .It is my go to bow maker every time ,so easy to use and creates beautiful bows every time .
