Week 228: BOW


It's time for a new cue word!  Whether you're into tying bows for the holiday season or would rather just take a bow, there are plenty of options for ideas this week since this word is one of those in the English language that has more than one definition and is pronounced differently, depending on which definition you choose!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Birch Press Design is returning as our wonderful sponsor and this week's winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to the online store!
