Be Happy with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, everyone.  Thanks for stopping by today as I share a sweet little card I created using some of my favorite products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used some of my old favorites, and some of my newer loves and obsessions.  I thought I'd tempt you with something sweet that leaves you SURE you need to order yourself from Flower Stamens.  Aren't they just the sweetest?
My card started with some older Crate Paper patterned papers (Emma's Shoppe) that I cut into strips, inked, and placed on the wood-grain patterned paper using strips of Scor-Tape.  This next picture will show you how I laid the Scor-Tape in strips and placed the ribbons and paper strips securely on top.   This wonderful Adhesive will hold them in worries!
Along with my patterned paper strips, I added a piece of Brenda Crochet White Lace and Textured Two-Tone Pink Ribbon, and I tied a bow with the same Textured Two-Tone Pink Ribbon.  I topped that with some Baby Pink Double Head Stamens, Red Double Head Stamens, Aqua Green Double Head Stamens, Gold Double Head Stamens, and White Double Head Stamens.  How FABULOUS are they?  Gotta have them all!  LOVE LOVEđź’—LOVE!!
I also added an inked doily die-cut, some cute journalling stickers from the Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe Collection, a miniature rusty paper clip, some vintage scotch tape, a touch of machine stitching, and a lovely knotted bow tied with Teal Baker's Twine.  I also tucked in two 30 mm Two-Toned Green and White Mulberry Paper Leaves behind the bow cluster.  The word HAPPY is a Melissa Frances rub-on, and the word BE is a SSS die-cut.
I thank you for stopping by today, and hope that you will visit often.  The Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog is the best place to learn about special sales and promotions taking place, to be inspired by the beautiful posts, and to participate in our monthly blog hops.  It's always a treat to have you stop by.


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - "Anything Goes" - I used a Simon Says Stamp die-cut (Be) for my sentiment.

Cuttlebug Mania Challenge Blog - Well, of course I used my Cuttlebug to cut the doily die-cut, and I can never resist adding a bow or some sort of ribbon!

Cut It Up Challenge Blog - Challenge #142 - Anything Goes - I used a cute doily die-cut on my card at the base of things, and I inked it to "grunge it up" a bit.
