Hello, and welcome to another installation of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog hop!
We had so much fun with our first hop a few weeks ago, introducing the new Design Team, that we wanted to do another one. Actually, we have decided to do one on the 13th of every month! Each month, the winner of the draw will receive the "Ribbon of The Month" package from RRR.
If you came here from Kerri's beautiful blog, you are in the right place!
If you just stumbled in, head on over to Bonnie's "Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings" blog to read the rules and start at the beginning.
OK...it's official...I have colored my very first Magnolia image! A friend gave this one to me quite awhile back and I never inked it up. Shame on me! I have redeemed myself now though! LOL!
I look back at my last several (dozen) cards and see a pattern. I LOVE ribbons and bows and love to use them....a lot!
I challenged myself to not use ribbons or bows on this card. Bad timing for a Really Reasonable Ribbon blog hop you say!! I think not!!!! They have a wonderful assortment of other items too. On this card I used their .25 cents a yard "Light Pink Mini Ric Rac" and my new all time favorite trim... "Moss Green Leaves".
Busted! I caught you looking for the leaf trim...didn't I? I forgot to tell you that my favorite way to use it is all cut up!
It makes wonderful shimmery leaves for flowers! And at only .80 cents a yard, it makes a lot inexpensive leaf accents!
This is the first time I have used flowers from "Wild Orchid Crafts" and I LOVE them!
The card base is Bazzill Salt Swiss Dots. The rest of the CS and the DP are "Stampin'Up".
The image was colored with Copics and paper pieced.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Fun With Shapes ~ "Pastel Inks"
Stamp Something ~ "Birthday Somethings" (Explanation...My camera pooped out on me before I got to shoot the inside. I will try to load a picture later. The inside sentiment reads "I hope you are surrounded by the ones you love and all things beautiful on your birthday!"
