Be Planted in Good Soil

Hello there!  Wow it's May already!  I hope you all have pretty blooms coming up in your yards!  I know I do!  My hubby and I bought quite a few perennials for a new bed in our backyard!  Until I married him, I always had annuals in pots on my front porch, but the gentle giant I married loves flowers and can spend hours pruning.  Thank goodness he loves it so much as my yard is going to be gorgeous!
Today I have a card for you featuring an image from Cute As A Button who is our generous sponsor over at Craft-dee Bowz where the challenge is anything goes with a bow!  The image comes with a sentiment so I printed the entire card front out and then made a cloud background from a scallop shape cut from my Cut n Scan and Distress Oxide ink.  The image was colored with a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir markers.  Of course, my beautiful persimmon bow was made with my Craft-dee Bowz Tool which makes the perfect bow everytime!  If you haven't tried the tool yet, I encourage you to jump over to the site and grab one!  I have no idea what I did before I owned one of these!  Without further ado...

Products used:  white/persimmon card stock, K&Co Tim Coffey specialty paper, Copic markers, Spectrum Noir Alchohol markers, white gelly roll pen, persimmon nibbed ribbon, Tumbled glass Distress Oxide Ink, Scalloped oval from Cut N Scan, Art glitter glue, and Good Soil- Bible Journaling Bookmark
