It's All About Family

One of the (MANY) things I love about designing for Really Reasonable Ribbon (I mean.....besides their amazing ribbons, laces, trims, flowers, hair accessories, decorative bags, etc.) is that they understand and promote the importance of family.  We're all encouraged to put our families first, and our Design Team has even become a bit of an extended family with whom we share our struggles, our sorrows, and our achievements.  It's so nice to design for companies that care about our families.
This card was made with family in mind.  I intend to send it to my sister-in-law (Audra's sister, Pam).  She has really been missing Audra lately, and struggling to fill in the empty spaces in her heart.  Little things often remind us of someone we love, and it's just so difficult to get past it.  I'm hoping this card will lift her spirits a bit.
I started with some Simple Stories patterned paper.  Then, I added LOTS of great ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I ran a length of 1.5" Champagne Netting across my card, and then made my big beautiful bow using some more of the 1.5" Champagne Netting, some Brown Plaid Ribbon, Burlap With Brown Center Stitch, Juliet Natural Crochet Lace, Burnt Rust Seam Binding, and a length of Natural Burlap String.  Then, I added a brown button and tied it with some Wheat Stripe Baker's Twine and some Brown Sugar Baker's Twine.  Once again, you can see how all of Really Reasonable Ribbons trims work together so well.

Really Reasonable Ribbon has SO many great trims, and you're sure to find the perfect embellishments for your next card or project.  I hope you will stop by Really Reasonable Ribbon to look around.  We also invite you to join us in our Current Challenge.  We love seeing your creations.

Have a blessed week!
