I've been working with my Crate Paper products for so many projects now that I've somehow forgotten my poor, neglected October Afternoon goodies that were tucked away in my hoosier. For some reason, they were calling to me this morning and I pulled them out to create this little card. I knew that I wanted to use this GORGEOUS red and white Houndstooth Ribbon from this month's ribbon assortment at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I knew that I'd have just the right papers in my October Afternoon stash to put with it. This is actually one piece of patterned paper, but I used both sides of it so that they'd compliment one another and match perfectly.
I cut a small panel of the polka dot paper and glued it towards the bottom, and machine stitched it into place to secure it. Then, I added a strip of the red and white Houndstooth Ribbon and tied a nice big bow with it. I also added an October Afternoon journalling card and sticker. Then, I attached some Mulbery Flowers to the sticker, and also tucked in a small red tag and a milk cap from October Afternoon. The stamped sentiment (bless your heart) is an old favorite of mine, and the red stamped hearts are a sneak peek from Simon Says Stamp's brand new My Favorite stamp set which will be released April 21.
With fingers crossed (once again), here's where I'm linking my card:
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge Blog says "Let's Do The Polka" - I used some sweet red and white polka dot patterned paper and gave a sneak peek of a new Simon Says Stamp set (My Favorite) being released April 21 (small red hearts).
Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge Blog says "April Showers Bring May Flowers" - I always love using flowers on my projects. We wouldn't have flowers without the rain, so let's always remember to be grateful despite the weather.
Thanks for visiting, and have a blessed week.
