Join Us In Really Reasonable Ribbon's March Blog Hop!


Hello everyone!
Welcome to another...

If you are here from the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened on to my blog because you like checking in on me every now and then, you'll want to head back there where it all starts.

The March Ribbon Club assortment is made up of one of my favorite color combinations....pinks, whites, and sage greens.
Isn't it beautiful? :)


For those of you who have yet to be blessed with a pretty assortment of ribbons and trims in your mail boxes each month, check out the monthly Ribbon Club details HERE to find out how.

My friends at Basic Grey sent me some of their new releases to play with, and this month's ribbon works perfectly with their sweet Knee Highs collection.

Here's my card.



It's a very simple layout that I created by cutting pieces from "Kissing Tag" and "Hide & Seek" designer papers, taped them together and cut to fit my card front.


I used White Checkerboard Satin and Green Diagonal Stripes Satin from this month's ribbon assortment, to both hide the seam, and to add a pretty detail to my card.

I tied the bow with my handy dandy Bow-Easy.

True's Tip of the Day:
I water-colored the hearts, then topped them with Crystal Effects before I colored the rest of the cupcake. That allowed me to paint the green wrapper without having to be careful of it bleeding into the hearts.

I used Matte Mod-Podge to adhere the sugar sprinkles (Art Glitter's #D29 Confection Hexis Grande) to the frosting.
I hand cut both the cupcake and the sentiment and attached them with foam tape.
Like I said...."easy" but cute right? ;)

I also entered this card in the Chevron Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. :) You should go check it out and join in on the fun! :) 

Your next stop on the hop is sweet Judy's joyful blog. I know she has something awesome to share with you!
BUT, BEFORE YOU GO....
Make sure and leave a comment below about my card, so I'll know you dropped by. Then comment on all of the girl's projects as well. They need some L♥VE too! 
Don't forget to end up back where you started, and answer Bonnie's question for your chance at winning the wonderful prize package from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for hopping by!
