Really Reasonable Ribbon/ The Rubber Cafe Blog Hop!


Hello everyone and...


The designers from Really Reasonable Ribbon and The Rubber Cafe, have teamed up to share some fabulous creations with you!
If you are here from The Rubber Cafe blog, you are in the right place! If you just happened on to my blog, you will want to go back there and start from the beginning! You don't want to miss any of the girls projects! You also don't want to miss commenting on everyone's blogs to help with your chances of winning an amazing prize! :)

I used The Rubber Cafe's Large Trailing Butterflies and several colors of ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon's April Monthly Ribbon Club assortment for my card today.




I stamped the image twice on Discount Card Stock's Brilliant White, so I could pop a few butterflies, then colored them with Copic markers. 




The other papers are Banana Split and Nautical Blue, also from Discount Card Stock. After assembling my card, I added some pretty bling from Want2Scrap.


This is what the awesome April club assortment looks like.
If you are not already a member of the ribbon club, there is no better time to join. CLICK HERE for more info.



The Rubber Cafe will be giving away a butterfly stamp set, some glitter and some glitter glue.
Really Reasonable Ribbon will be giving away this prize package...




Thanks so much for hopping by!
