Remembering My Little Red Wagon

Hello, ribbon-loving friends!  I'm so glad you've stopped by today as I share this special card with you all that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Before I get started, I'm just wondering....how many of you remember having a either a Radio Flyer wagon or one like it?  I sure remember having hours and hours of fun in mine.  It brings back such happy memories!
To celebrate these happy memories, I've created a sweet nostalgic card that takes us back to a simpler time.  I used some Jillibean Soup vintage ephemera and lots of great supplies from Really Reasonable Ribbon to make it extra awesome.  Once I had my card stock, patterned paper, October Afternoon chipboard (wagon), and ephemera pieces in place, I added a length of Cream Seam Binding; and then added a big bow with the Cream Seam Binding, and I topped it with a 14mm White Flower-Shaped Flatback Round Pearl.  I love the vintage look that Really Reasonable Ribbon's sweet Embellishments add to  my projects.
I also added a small piece of the Red Center Stitched Burlap as well as the Brown Center Stitched Burlap (LOVE LOVE LOVE this ribbon SO much).  There's also a "sale tag" I added by attaching of piece of Really Reasonable Ribbon's awesome Baker's Twine.  I used the Cherry Baker's Twine, and Solid Red Baker's Twine.
I hope you will stop by to check out all the amazing ribbons, trims, embellishments, flowers and SO much more available at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  And don't forget about the fun challenge taking place on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  We love seeing your creativity!

Have a blessed week, and thanks again for stopping by today,
Karen
