Birthday Blessings . . .

It's time for a new Twisted Thursday over at The Outlawz.
Today's challenge is Anything Goes - Twist/ Birthday
 and today's sponsor is NiceCrane Designs.

The cute image used on today's card is from Nice Crane Designs 'Sweetie Kids II' sheet.

The colorful papers I chose to use with this cutie pie image are from Basic Grey ... Marrakech and June Bug paper packs (one from each).  As you can see, I cut them both the same size then cut them diagonally so I could repeat the pretty patterns on the inside of the card as well as the front.

Once again I've been able to use up some of the scraps on my work table.  After stamping my JustRite sentiment and die cutting using Spellbinder classic ovals die, I grabbed a few 'scrap' oval cuts (have a box full) and layered a few behind my sentiment for matting ... turned out kind of cute don't you think??

I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool to create my bow today.  
Works so great when I'm trying to make a SMALL bow with a little wider/heavier ribbon!!
I like using my Bow Easy also ... but sometimes I have trouble pulling the ribbon tight because the plastic tool flexes.  It's nice to have OPTIONS!!!

A few challenges to share in:
