I Believe in the Magic of Kindness

Hi friends.  I’m so excited to be guest designing this week over on the Crafting by Design Challenge Blog!

The challenge theme this week at Crafting by Designs is ‘Add a Flower’ which is perfect for me because you know I love making paper flowers!  I hope you’ll head over and join in this week.  You can add any type of flower or even a flower image or designs paper.  Head on over and show us your creativity.
My card showcases the brand new and fabulous Deutschland Square Doily from Cheery Lynn Designs and the gorgeous roses are made with their Tea Rose die.
  
I topped my card off with a bi-color double loop bow using Light Orchid and Grape Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.

Life is a Joy Filled With Delightful Surprises

Hi friends.  Today I have a very feminine card to share.  Whether it’s an all occasion card or Valentine’s Day card, beautiful pink ribbons and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon will finish it off beautifully.

I created the pretty bow using the Hot Pink Taffeta Ribbon from the January Ribbon Club Assortment on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  Although this is a double-faced ribbon, I made the bow in the same manner as my bi-color double-looped bow because I wanted the double set of tails for more fullness.
To view a video tutorial on how I created this bow, please click HERE.
I used a grouping of gorgeous Mulberry Paper Roses and two pink Spiral Stamens from Wild Orchid Crafts to embellish below the sentiment.  I curled the stems around a needle tool to create the spirals and add a little more green to the card.  The mulberry flowers add a beautiful look and they are so quick and easy.  They are the perfect embellishment to coordinate with the frilly Fleur de Lis Boutique Stacker Frame die from Cheery Lynn Designs that makes up the lacy front of the card.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
Shop our Stash – 3, 2, 1 – I have 3 cottage roses, 2 wild roses and one bow.  Hope that works!
