Have A Swell Day

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, everyone.  I always appreciate your visits, and today I'm sharing another fun nostalgic card for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I love using up old patterned papers from my stash; and by adding a few simple trims and some pretty flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon, it quickly becomes an extra special card.  Just look at what these two RRR trims did for this card:
Once I had my patterned papers together and in place using my Scor-Tape Adhesive, I added a length of Color Band With Stitched Edge (in Tan) and used some delicious Cotton Candy Baker's Twine to wrap around my card several times and tie into a bow.  I did ink the edges of my patterned papers (I almost always do), and I added a couple of stickers from October Afternoon.  On top of my Cotton Candy Baker's Twine bow, I added a White Flatback Pearl.  All around that, I added several sweet Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms.  I used a pastel assortment that is currently out of stock, but there are miniatures in stock and they are beautiful!  I love adding them to my cards for an extra sweet kiss of cuteness!
Really Reasonable Ribbon has SO MANY great trims and trinkets to quickly adorn your next card or project.  I encourage to stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop to see for yourself what I mean when I always that they "truly have it all".  I know you'll find something you absolutely LOVE, and that will make your next project amazing.  And....don't forget about the fun challenge taking part now on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.

Have an amazing and creative day,
