Cheers from Really Reasonable Ribbon

Welcome by, everyone!  I'm posting for Really Reasonable Ribbon today with this sweet card that I created by combining two patterned papers that I inked with Tim Holtz Concord Grape Distress Ink and glued together.  I ran a torn piece of pink/cream striped washi tape along the sides of the smaller piece of patterned paper.  Then, I added a sentiment card (cheers) that I inked with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  The patterned papers and sentiment card are all from Crate Paper.
Once I had all that in place, I chose to adorn my card (quite) a bit.  At the bottom left, I made a BIG bow layered with Mulberry Flowers; and they were added (from the bottom up) in this order:  I tied a double bow using the 5/8" Delphium Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon, Lilac Seam BindingBaby Pink Seam Binding, Ivory Burlap String, Natural Burlap String, Burlap Center Stitch Brown, and then a 35mm WOC Green/White (pink) Paper Leaf, and several Sweetheart Blossoms including purple, ivory and white.
You'll also see that just below the sentiment, I added some Embellishments including a felt bird who is sitting on three White Flat Back Pearls and nest made of  Violet Burlap String and Ivory Burlap String.  I really wanted you to see a close-up of the sweet 35mm WOC Green/White (pink) Paper Leaf, and lovely Sweetheart Blossoms I used.

I absolutely love using Burlap String because it adds so much fabulous texture to your cards; and because it is a TREMENDOUS VALUE at just $1.00 for TEN YARDS. comes in 15 fabulous colors.  This is a trim you will use for so many different things, and Really Reasonable Ribbon has it priced so low that you can afford to pick up ten yards of every color.  There are so many fabulous products at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I encourage you to check it out and treat yourself today!
There's also a FUN CHALLENGE taking place now on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, and I hope you will play along with us.  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week.
