It's Blog Hop Time at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, all my ribbon loving friends!  It's time for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop, and I'm so glad you're here to join in on all the fun.  You should have arrived here by way of Bonnie's Blog; but if you didn't, it's easy to get started and catch up.  One lucky person will win this month's Ribbon Club Assortment and it is GORGEOUS!!!  Take a look at this:
Here's a list of all of the GORGEOUS ribbons in this month's Ribbon Club Assortment including a link to each one: 3/8" Quatrefoil Print on Shocking Pink Satin Ribbon, 5/8" Checkerboard Satin Ribbon, 3/8" Pink and Purple Bold Diagonal Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, 5/8" Diamond Satin Regal Purple, 5/8" Vintage Floral Print Satin Ribbon, 5/8" Delicate Stitched Satin Shocking Pink Ribbon, 3/8" Vertical Striped Grosgrain Mixed Pink & Purple Ribbon, 5/8" Double Faced Satin Hyacinth, and 3/8" Shell Print on Regal Satin Ribbon.  All of these lovely ribbons can be used for Summer projects, and all year long.  They are absolutely beautiful!  This little butterfly bow was created using a sparkly vinyl fabric sheet cut into the shape of butterfly wings, and carefully attached to a French Clip.  The butterfly wings include pieces of 5/8" Vintage Floral Print Satin Ribbon3/8" Quatrefoil Print on Shocking Pink Satin Ribbon, the base is wrapped with and 3/8" Shell Print on Regal Satin Ribbonand the "antennas" were made using the adorable 3/8" Vertical Striped Grosgrain Mixed Pink & Purple Ribbon.  

I also wanted to make a card using some of these fabulous trims, so I put this card together.  I used Echo Park patterned papers and journalling card, a vintage dairy bottle cap, a Prima wire butterfly, and some Tim Holtz Distress Inks on the edges of the paper.  I ran a width of the 5/8" Vintage Floral Print Satin Ribbon, as well as 3/8" Vertical Striped Grosgrain Mixed Pink & Purple Ribbon, across my card as borders.  I also created a lovely bow using some Baby Pink Seam Binding, Peacock Alley Seam BindingIvory Burlap String, and one of the sweet trims from this month's Ribbon Club Assortment called 3/8" Quatrefoil Print on Shocking Pink Satin Ribbon, and I topped that with a 25mm Open Rose Pale Pink With Hot Pink Center, as well as some Sweetheart Blossoms in turquoise, mixed blues, ivory and mixed pinks.  I also tucked in some adorable Pink Double Head Stamens, Baby Blue Double Head Stamens, and some Teal Double Head Stamens and White Double Head Stamens (temporarily sold out).  There are so many ADORABLE Mulberry Flowers, Embellishments and trims at Really Reasonable Ribbon to adorn ALL your projects.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Your next stop on this hop is at the blog of my awesome teammate, Kathy.  I hope you enjoy her project.  Don't forget to answer the question on the RRR Blog at the end to be eligible for the prize, which is this month's Ribbon Club Assortment.
Before I run off...I want to mention that the Double Head Stamens at $1.99/bundle of 160 pieces, are selling out quickly (some colors are already unavailable) so I'd suggest grabbing these today while you can.  They're SO pretty, and add SO much personality to your flowers, bows, etc.  Today is a great day to treat yourself.
