Lil' Inker Designs May Release Blog Hop {Day 2}

Welcome to {Day 2} of the Lil' Inker Designs May Release! If you came from Alicia's blog, you are on the right track. If not, start at Laura's blog so you don't miss a thing! If you hopped with the first half of the design team on {Day 1}, then you've probably already fallen in love with, and maybe even purchased one or both of the Bow Dies? ;) These are going to be so popular, I just know it! There are so many possibilities with these dies and I made an elegant masculine card that combines the trendiness of bow ties with mustaches. I think this would be a fun card to give to a male friend. When my husband saw the card, he said this would make a great Movember card. LOL

The sentiment on my card is from the 2 Cute Ink set Arctic Friends. I've only used the Small Bow Die on my project but there's also a Large Bow Die. Amy Kolling and Jen Carter showcased the two sizes perfectly in their posts yesterday. The product graphics with dimensions are included below and if you would like to purchase them now, just click on the photos!

Lil' Inker Designs is giving away one $10 store credit and one Sentiment Flags Additions set so be sure to comment on all blogs every day this week for your best chance to win one of these two fabulous prizes! Now it's time to head on over to Teresa's blog for more inspiration.
