Yeeaayy! Finally!

Evening blogger friends!

Was having trouble with my email for a while, but I'm so excited to have finally been able to email Sandra Strijland and order her bow card Template.

You can order it here: sandra'sscrapshop.blogspot.com/bowcardtemplate#91
You scroll down and click on the cash register and you send her an email telling her you want the bow card Template #91 and whether you want the silhouette version also.
(include your email if it's bcc'd, ie: not visible)
She will then send you an order form(?) which you complete through paypal only.
Once she receives your payment, (US $4.05) she will send you the template files which I downloaded into a seperate file in My Pictures for my blog.

Anyhoo, here is my first bow card I've made using my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out.
(Soooo much easier than fussy cutting!!)

WARNING!! It takes ALOT of paper to make these because they are pretty big, no, down right huge! I'm going to try and see if I can't reduce them maybe 50%.

Entering in these challenges:

Crafting With Friends - #44 AAG (Design Team Fav!)
Crafty Catz - #372 Make Your Own Flowers
Crafty Sentiments - Not a Card
Glitter n Sparkle - #241 AG
QKR Stampede - #245 AAG/Birthday Cards

I saw this orchid on Valita's Fresh Folds and thought I'd give it a shot for the center.



                   I put lace around the base of the card.






I've seen a plethora of pictures of these on Pinterest and most of them are decorated to the hilt.
Mine's a little plain in comparison.

That's it for today!
Thanks to the challengers for lettin' me play along.
Blessings!

Now these pictures shows the metallic way better than the last post.
I used a red background (even tho it looks orange) to see if the metalic would show up better, and this is the ruby finish, even tho it looks gold


I just love these flowers. It's the first time I used a die to make my own flowers from the Crafter's Companion Rustic Cottage Collection.


The butterfly is a Spellbinders die.


This picture shows what the actual color is. Looks more copper.
That's a Spellbinders Labels 20 die under the sentiment
The bling is from Want 2 Scrap.
I picked up the sentiment stamp from Michaels.
