Hi Ya!

It's April Fool's Day right?  The joke must be on me since I think we should still be in February!  Man this year is flying by.  I have a design team project for the April Challenge over at Craft-dee Bowz where anything goes with a bow!  I must have had my nephew on my mind when I chose this cute image from our sponsor, LeAnn's World 101, as he wants to be a Ninja when he grows up!  He's only 6, so he has time to change his mind!    I did something a little different and used ribbon for my entire background to represent the different belts in Martial Arts.  I have to admit it was hard to incorporate a bow in this as you don't see bows in Karate, but I made it work as a beautiful embellishment. I made my double loop bow using the two pegs closetst together on my Craft-dee Bowz Tool. which gives you the perfect bow every time!    I hope you like it.

Products used:  white/black card stock, red/yellow/orange/blue/green/brown/black 3/8 inch ribbon from Hobby Lobby, Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers, Scotch Tape, Word doc created sentiment, Bertech foam tape,  Art glitter glue, and  Karate Chris digi stamp
