Beautiful Ribbon

Well, we all survived another Christmas!  I'm sure that you're all just as happy as I am to have it behind us.  It's a lot of fun, but it sure is a lot of work as well.  I'm ready to move on.  I made this card as I prepare for my oldest daughter's birthday in early January, and Really Reasonable Ribbon helped me make it special.
I started with a patterned paper base and sewed on a sheet of vellum.  I added a die-cut frame in gold, as well as a gold letter A (for my daughter's name).  Then.....the good stuff!  I made a big bow using several of Really Reasonable Ribbon's GORGEOUS trims including the Forsythia (deep yellow) Seam Binding, Dusty Olive Seam Binding, Diva Lemonwood Solid Baker's Twine and Deep Pink Solid Baker's Twine.
I also added some of Really Reasonable Ribbon's beautiful Open Roses.  The ones I added are the lovely Two-Tone Yellow Roses.  They come in so many gorgeous colors and styles that you're sure to find the perfect shade Mulberry Flowers to adorn all your cards and projects.  We encourage you to check out ALL the fabulous items carried at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  By the way, this card is technically for tomorrow's post; but because there's a very special FIVE-DAY SALE taking place now at Really Reasonable Ribbon, I wanted to post it just to give you a chance to get in on the BIG SALE.  We also have a super FUN challenge starting on January 6, and we really hope you will join us.  We want to see what wonderful treats you got for Christmas.  See you then!

  8. Oh wow, Karen--this incredible card is a gift itself! I know your daughter will treasure it! I've been looking for some new challenges, so thanks for the info on CropStop. My only question is whether all the products used must be from companies carried in the store or just one item on the project entered? Happy New Year! sghess4451 @ comcast dot net
