Fun Photo Inspiration Challenge at RRR

It's time for another SUPER FUN, and beautiful, challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This time, we have a GORGEOUS inspiration photo for you to use on your cards and projects.  You don't have to take it literally, just let something (anything) in the photo inspire you; whether it's the colors, the textures, the shapes, etc., YOU decide what you want to create.  As long as you use some ribbon or trim on your card or project, it will be just PERFECT; and we're always delighted to have you play along with us.  There's also LOTS of great inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to get you started.  This is my card, using LOTS of great ribbons, trims and flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon:
I started my card with some patterned papers that I machine stitched together for the base.  Next, I ran several lengths of Black Licorice Baker's Twine up the side of my card, and attached a bow in the upper left-hand corner which includes more of the sweet Black Licorice Baker's Twine, as well as some beautiful Pink Aster Seam Binding.  It's topped with the lovely Deep Ivory Roses and the Pink Open Roses, which are the perfect touch.  I can hardly wait to see how this lovely inspiration photo will inspire YOU!
I created my sentiment by applying a rub-on to a tiny Maya Road canvas tag and adding some little color-coordinated pearl accent stickers.  The little green wire swirls on the Wild Orchid Craft Open Roses are just beautiful, and offer that special little touch.  You will absolutely LOVE all the sweet flowers carried at Really Reasonable Ribbon; not to mention all the fabulous ribbon and trims.
We really hope that you will stop by to play along with us.  It always blesses us when you play along in our challenges.  We also hope you will check out the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop.  You can NEVER have enough ribbon!
I'm sharing my card in the following AWESOME SSS challenges:
