Really Reasonable Ribbon / Fred She Said Challenge Card

Hi Everyone!
Today starts a new challenge over @ Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings and we have teamed up with Fred She Said so there are lots of pretty "Fredded" projects to look at on the RRRR blog.
The challenge theme is "Double Dutch" Use 2 ribbons, 2 laces or 2 trims.
The beautiful ribbons I used are Really Reasonable Ribbon's ~  Olive Wrinkled Ribbon and a Yellow Satin with Dots that was in one of their Ribbon of the Month sets. These sets are such a great way to add to your ribbon stash. Some ribbons are only available in the Ribbon Club sets! This month's set has lots of pretty pinks and browns! :)


I watercolored the image several times then fussy cut them out and layered up to 3 times.
The beautiful designer paper is from K&Company's - Susan Winget - Nature stack.


 I used a piece of sunflower, that would have been tossed when I cut the front out to layer, to decorate the inside too.


Thanks so much for dropping by today! I hope you will head on over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog and see what the RRR and Fred girls have to show you. There are some truly beautiful projects over there for your inspiration!  We would love you to join in on our fun challenge too!
You could win a $20 gift certificate from Fred She Said or a $10 gift certificate from Really Reasonable Ribbon!
