Really Reasonable Ribbon ROCKS!

It's no secret that I love making cards, and I LOVE my bows.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has ALL the best ribbons and trims to make my bows look fabulous.  Just look at this GORGEOUS new 5/8" Satin with Stitched Center Ribbon in Robin's Egg Blue.  It's absolutely lovely, and it comes in seven beautiful colors.  I won't be satisfied until I own them ALL.....because, YES!  They're THAT gorgeous.
I started my card with some Crate Paper patterned papers that I machine stitched together.  I added a small chipboard frame that I backed with a piece of vellum and added several sequins that I placed inside it.  My sentiment is stamped with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink, and I also added a sequin to that.
I ran a length of this luscious new 5/8" Satin with Stitched Center Ribbon in Robin's Egg Blue across the card, and also made two bows with it that I layered (one on top of the other).  I also added small bows made from Gold Metallic String, Solid Wheat Baker's Twine, and Mint Solid Baker's Twine.  I topped that sweet bow with a light blue button using my hot glue gun.
Really Reasonable Ribbon ROCKS, and they have EVERYTHING you need to make a spectacular card, scrapbook page, head band or bow, and SO many other possibilities.  I encourage you to check out this gorgeous new ribbon, among all the other fabulous products they carry.  And don't forget the FUN CHALLENGE taking place on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.

I'm sharing my card here:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "A Bit 'O Green" - My primary color is more of a robin's egg blue, but I do have mint baker's twine and green leaves in the floral patterned paper, so that does give it a "bit 'o green" anyway.  Happy St. Patty's Day!

Choux Choux Paper Art - Challenge #4 - St. Patrick's Day/Green - I used a very soft minty green

Just Us Girls - Challenge #334 - Trend Week - Shaker Cards - I added my little shaker element on the top right.

Thanks for stopping by!
